Phoenix, Arizona – (The Hosting News) – February 28, 2008 – Subsidiary of Newtek Business Services and a provider of Windows-based web hosting, CrystalTech Web Hosting, is participating in Microsoft’s 2008 Global Launch Wave as an official partner.
Bob Cichon, President of CrystalTech noted, ”As a longtime Microsoft partner, CrystalTech has consistently been at the forefront of new Microsoft technologies. Their highly-anticipated new operating system, Windows Server 2008, provides us with an ideal environment to support the vast needs of our web developer customer base. This especially includes security and innovations that improve administration and development.”
The provider of Windows web hosting, has made available the Windows Server 2008 on shared and dedicated hosting plans, in addition to being named an official partner in Microsoft’s ”Heroes Happen Here” 2008 campaign.
With built-in web technologies, lead by the robust capabilities of Internet Information Services (IIS) 7, Windows Server 2008 has been built specifically for the web, featuring new security enhancements and a reliable foundation on which to develop, deliver and support web applications. As one of the few web hosts to offer Windows Server 2008 as a release candidate, CrystalTech has already been supporting Microsoft’s latest operating system for several weeks in their own environment in preparation of the official launch.
Windows Server 2008 is designed to enable developers to deliver rich web-based applications efficiently and effectively, and will improve administration, diagnostics, and application tools. The new operating system also includes built-in server virtualization technology that can reduce costs, increase hardware utilization, and improve availability.
Mr. Cichon added, ”CrystalTech’s participation in the 2008 Global Launch Wave is another example of our close relationship with Microsoft. As with previous Microsoft web-related technologies, we will continue to be among the first to participate, whether that is testing a new product in its beta stage, or helping launch a new product to the public as we are now doing with Windows Server 2008.”
