This is why Microsoft joined forces with Red Hat in late 2015. We started by making Red Hat solutions available natively to Microsoft Azure customers, delivering integrated enterprise support across hybrid environments, collaborating on .NET for a new generation of applications, and more. Last year we announced that we would bring SQL Server to Linux, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Since then we’ve continued to work together to bring these and other solutions – and, with it unmatched choice and flexibility – to our customers. In that spirit, with this week’s announcement a customer running OpenShift can use Linux and Windows containers together in a single cluster, they can use .NET Core 2.0 in a container on OpenShift, and SQL Server on either operating system and OpenShift, either on Azure or in their own datacenters. This just extends our customers’ ability to choose the right technology for the right job and have them work together. It is pretty cool to see this come to life, even if it was inconceivable not long ago.

A Cloud VPS is an emulation of a computer, also known as a virtual private server, that lives within a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. As where a Dedicated Server is a stand-alone, physical server that does not share resources. As with fixed resources, scarcity can lead to less than optimal performance for the resource-intensive application, which is why Dedicated Servers often outperform VPS instances.
Recognized for the excellent uptime and ability to handle large loads of traffic, you'll also no longer have to contend with noisy neighbors.

The typical installation of CentOS as performed in this tutorial will be based on the CentOS 7 DVD ISO image. You can burn the image to a DVD or copy it to a bootable USB drive. The installation covers the process of installing CentOS 7 on UEFI based machine. The same installation procedure can be successfully applied on old BIOS motherboards or on UEFI systems with Legacy Mode or CSM (Compatibility Support Module) option enabled.

There are many reasons to consider a Linux server for your hosting needs, regardless of your personal familiarity (or lack thereof) of this operating system. For starters, Linux servers tend to be the most secure of all operating systems by a long shot. This, in addition to taking some basic security precautions, can give you added peace of mind when it comes to protecting your site from a security breach or other vulnerabilities.

Managed hosting minimizes the amount of hands-on IT work you have to do. The level of management can vary from provider to provider. Some hosts offer your choice of semi- or fully managed services — and one host’s fully managed plan may be entirely different than another provider’s fully managed plan. All in all, management services may include, but are not limited to, hardware monitoring, software updates, security patches, and bug fixes.


Dedicated web servers are for those who want all the power to themselves without having to share any of it with other users and their customers. Dedicated hosting, as opposed to shared hosting, is a hosting solution that's all yours. In a shared hosting environment, you share a server's resources with other users with running on their own virtual servers and sharing the hardware resources. With a dedicated solution, you get your own Linux dedicated server with all of its resources to use as you please for your website. That means all the bandwidth, RAM, CPU, and data transfer are all yours. Essentially you're renting a complete server from us.
