Atlantic.Net Announces Windows Server Container Support in the Cloud

Combined with its On-Demand, Highly Redundant Platform and Per Hour Billing, Atlantic.Net Now Offers One of the Most Flexibly Priced, Portable Operating Environment for Developers

ORLANDO, Fla., May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading cloud hosting provider Atlantic.Net today announced support for Windows Server Containers, which enables Windows users to package applications into images that can be run on any Windows 2016 server. Users can now deploy and scale their Windows Server Containers across Atlantic.Net's Cloud Servers, making it one of the first highly redundant cloud hosting providers to do so.

Atlantic.Net's container support eliminates the "it works on my machine" problem once and for all. Package dependencies with your apps in Docker containers, for portability and predictability during development, testing, and deployment. Additionally, isolating your apps in containers helps eliminate conflicts, enhance security, and makes it easy to scale your deployments as needed. 

Windows Server 2016, the latest Windows Server offering from Microsoft, along with Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2008, are all available on Cloud Servers from Atlantic.Net. The company is one of the first to offer Windows container support, specifically for Docker, a full development platform for creating containerized apps.

"This is a major announcement that will definitely cause a ripple effect across the industry – specifically amongst developers. Most developers today move their applications and development environments around tirelessly. They need a cloud that is easy to use, 'on-demand' or self-service (i.e. they can provision the actual servers themselves)," said Marty Puranik, CEO of Atlantic.Net. "Developers can go to a traditional hosting provider, sign a contract and theoretically move the environments between servers they contracted for. Instead, with our offering, developers can now do this without having to sign a contract or talking to anyone. Essentially, we're significantly expediting the process for developers to reap the benefits of containers without any long-term commitment whatsoever."

Erin Chapple, General Manager for Windows Server, Microsoft Corp. said, "Atlantic.Net's support for Windows Server Containers in their cloud platform brings additional choice and options for our joint customers in search of flexible and innovative cloud services."

The Windows Server 2016 is a solid solution for customers needing power and speed to run applications remotely. Atlantic.Net Cloud Server clients can test the new tools offered by the Windows 2016 operating system and pay via a usage model on a per-hour basis, without having to incur additional licensing costs.

Atlantic.Net's Windows Cloud Hosting plans start at only $0.0208 per hour (or $14 per month), with usage calculated on a per hour basis. For a limited time, Atlantic.Net is offering $50 of free credits with promo code 'WinContainer50' for all new clients and 3TBs or more of outbound data transfer is included with every server.
