Providing .NET/Windows hosting support, CirrusGrid allows developers and ISV companies to host web applications and services that are run on the Windows operating system. Besides the commonly popular software stacks like IIS web-server and MSSQL database server, you also can get a separate dedicated virtual private server with the corresponding OS run inside.
Elastic Windows VPS hosting at CirrusGrid provides all the functionality of a virtual private server, combining it with the availability of the Cloud and backing by the strength of the Windows Operating System:
Having the benefits of the Windows OS, you can easily get highly available and ready to automatically scale (if needed) Windows-based virtual machine installed in just a few clicks.
Note: The availability of Windows hosting services (and Windows VPS 2008 container in particular) depends on your hosting provider’s settings.
Also, since Windows OS is proprietary software and can’t be distributed freely (i.e. requires the license to be applied to the platform), you can be charged for using such containers (regardless of whether it’s running or stopped). The availability and the price of Windows hosting services depend on your hosting provider settings.
To get Windows VPS hosted, access your CirrusGrid dashboard and open environment topology wizard. Herein, click on the VPS section at the bottom left corner and choose Windows 2012 (or Windows 2008, if available) from the expandable options list.
Note: Custom Docker containers based on the Windows OS are not supported by CirrusGrid PaaS.
Specify the remaining options (for the detailed guidance, refer to the Setting Up Environment guide) and click the Create button.
Note: You’ll automatically get the Public IP address for each container added from the VPS section (one per instance).
Once your Windows VPS is up, you can access the required server via the remote desktop protocol (RDP) to perform any configurations needed. After the connection is established, the inbuilt Server Manager is used to operate your VPS – to start with, examine the basic operations available within this tool.
