When we launched our Cloud Infrastructure back in April 2008, one of our core requirements was to not only provide Linux distributions, but also Windows Servers in the cloud. We offered Windows Server 2003 immediately and a few months later added Windows Server 2008 to the mix.
Last month, we added Windows Server 2012 64-bit to round out our robust Windows Server line in the GoGrid cloud.
We continue to provide Windows Servers in the cloud license-free meaning that you do not pay an additional surcharge on top of your cloud infrastructure costs. The only exceptions to this are for Windows Servers that have Microsoft SQL Server included.
It’s important to note that there is no longer an 8-core limitation on cloud servers. We now provide the same core allocations as we do with our Linux cloud servers, specifically:
- XX-Large Cloud Servers with 16 GB RAM now come with 16-cores
- XXX-Large Cloud Servers with 24 GB RAM now come with 24-cores
The number of cores is directly tied to the size of the server: (more…) «Windows Server 2012 Now Available in the GoGrid Cloud»
