    [EN] Atlantic.Net brings Windows Container support to its cloud hosting platform

    Frederic Lardinois

    Atlantic.Net, the Florida-based hosting provider, today announced that its users can now use Windows Server Containers on its platform to bring their existing Windows workloads into the cloud.

    Atlantic.Net’s CEO Marty Puranik tells me that in order to enable this, the company is launching a container-ready image of Windows Server 2016 beside the standard Windows Server 2016 image. This means developers won’t have to go through PowerShell to download and install extensions to start working with containers.

    Puranik noted that he’s mostly seeing demand from DevOps groups that want to move their Windows applications into the cloud and he expects that quite a few companies will also want to use this new service to quickly test and deploy containers on Windows Server 2016. He also tells me that his company may look at launching a dedicated container service if there’s enough customer demand for it, but for now, the company wants to give businesses a platform for deploying and scaling their Windows Containers.

    “As a side note: because we deploy virtual machines much faster than AWS and have faster SSD Raid10 local storage the whole experience is much better — server is ready faster, it just does everything more snappy — and you get redundancy on the server storage as well,” Puranik noted. “So once people try our environment, they don’t want to go back.”

    Windows Server hosting plans at Atlantic.Net currently start at $0.0208 per hour (or $14 per month).

    PR: 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.

    Windows Server Containers – provide application isolation through process and namespace isolation technology. A Windows Server Container shares a kernel with the container host and all containers running on the host. These containers do not provide a hostile security boundary and should not be used to isolate untrusted code.

    A container runs an operating system, has a file system and can be accessed over a network just as if it was a physical or virtual computer system. That said, the technology and concepts behind containers are very different from that of virtual machines.




    Containers share the host operating system, including the kernel and libraries, so they don’t need to boot an OS, load libraries or pay a private memory cost for those files. The only incremental space they take is any memory and disk space necessary for the application to run in the container. While the application’s environment feels like a dedicated OS, the application deploys just like it would onto a dedicated host. The containerized application starts in seconds and many more instances of the application can fit onto the machine than in the VM case.
