iWeb first to offer Windows Server 2012

Published on August 31, 2012 at 11:02 am by iWeb Technologies in: Product updates

Windows Server 2012 with iWeb

iWeb is proud to be among the first dedicated hosting providers to offer Windows Server 2012. The new Microsoft server OS will be available on iWeb.com and as an upgrade for iWeb’s existing Windows server customers from September 4, the very same day as the Microsoft product launch.

Microsoft will be hosting an online launch for Windows Server 2012 at 8:00 Pacific Time. You can register for it here.

The new version of Microsoft’s server is seen as something of a revolution, with hundreds of changes to the server’s features and interface. One of the notable advancements is the new generation Hyper-V, which Microsoft hopes will set a new benchmark for virtualization.

The Windows platform is also available on iWeb’s range of Smart Servers, meaning that Windows is now available across iWeb’s entire range of dedicated servers.

These developments follow the introduction of Intel Xeon E3 and E5 processors to iWeb’s line up of dedicated servers. The E3 and E5 processors offer improved power and reliability and are recommended by iWeb for use with Windows Server 2012.

Licensing changes

Microsoft will also update its licensing agreement on September 4, in order to simplify the range of editions and licenses available.

Existing Windows server users may be affected by these changes and will receive an email with further details in due course. To find out more about the nature of the changes you can also see our Windows licensing article on the KnowledgeBase.

New Microsoft logo revealed

Published on August 24, 2012 at 11:57 am by iWeb Technologies in: Web Marketing Articles

Microsoft’s very ordinary looking new logo was launched today after a whopping 25 years without a major refresh. The previous logo has been quietly presented to many of us around the world each morning of our working life, so we should all be taking an interest…

Perhaps a victim of its own ubiquity, the previous logo had an uncanny ability to slip unnoticed in front of our eyes and fail to stick in our minds as a good logo arguably should. Far more iconic, in fact, were the Windows logo (also updated for the release of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012), and the Windows start-up tones, including Brian Eno’s ‘composition’ for Windows ‘95.

The new, less-than-striking logo is probably not a great surprise to those familiar with Microsoft’s recent interfaces and communications. The four squares are reminiscent of those recent interfaces and the colours echo those of the Windows flag, while the grey font is Segoe, also used across much of Microsoft’s corporate identity and communications.

Here’s a look at how the logo has slowly progressed away from its groovy 1970s incarnation to the new one:

Windows now available on Smart Servers

Published on August 7, 2012 at 3:35 pm by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Articles

At iWeb, we are committed to meeting the needs of our customers. You asked for Windows on Smart Servers so here it is. Everyone can now benefit from iWeb’s Smart Servers flexibility regardless of Operating System required. You will be able to choose between Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 Web or Standard edition starting from only 10.00/month.

Why choose a Windows Smart Server
Here are some features that will help you make the Smart decision:

Rapid Deploy
If you need your Windows Server up and running in less than 2 hours, Smart Server is the way to go.

Instant Console Access
Available at all times, the Virtual Console allows you to manage your server as if you were on-site. You can view the OS start-up screen or control the server through its native graphical user interface.

Enhanced Control Center
The Control Center gives you more management options for your Smart Server. New functionalities are accessible right from the Control Center: OS re-installation, remote server reboot and many more. New features will constantly be added to make your server even easier to manage as time goes by.

OS Reinstall
When administering a server, a full system reinstall is sometimes needed. Now there is no need to open a technical support request and wait for the next available technician. You can now proceed yourself with this operation, in a few clicks. This feature really saves you time and improves productivity. It will bring you even more flexibility and autonomy in the way you manage your server.

Smart Groups
Smart Group is a private virtual LAN service for all the Smart Servers in your account and is completely dedicated to your account.
Servers within a group can communicate while remaining invisible to other clients’ servers connected to the same local network, like a private rack. The Smart Servers share information via a local link, which increases the security of your servers. Furthermore, local bandwidth is unlimited with the SuperSmart package.

All Windows offers on Smart servers are available at this address: http://iweb.com/smart-server-hosting/overview.

Need Windows Server virtualization ? Take a look at our V-ready Classic servers.
Since iWeb Smart Servers are based on a virtualization technology, using Hyper-V on Smart servers is actually not possible. If you want to manage multiple virtual machines on one dedicated server, have a look on our Virtualization Ready Servers or contact our sales team, they’ll be happy help you with your project.
