RapidSwitch, a leading supplier of self-managed dedicated server solutions, has become one of the first UK hosting companies to offer Windows Server 2012 to its customers.
The much-awaited new operating system, incorporating Microsoft's new Hyper-V 3, will provide customers with reliable and easy to implement off-site disaster recovery at affordable prices.
Aimed specifically at SMEs, Hyper-V Replica is one of the key features of Windows Server 2012 to offer a dynamic, multi-tenant infrastructure to help scale and secure workloads and build private cloud solutions.
RapidSwitch parent company iomart Group plc recently announced a major investment in a dedicated fibre ring connecting its data centres, so Hyper-V Replica will be implemented in a high-bandwidth, low-latency network environment.
Neil Christie, Commercial Director of RapidSwitch, says, "Many of our customers have been eagerly awaiting both the investment in our network infrastructure and the release of Hyper-V specifically to cater for multi-site disaster recovery. RapidSwitch can now offer this technology to its customers at a price they can afford."
RapidSwitch offers both Microsoft and VMware products for virtualization.
