iiNet teams up with Microsoft

Telco offers VPS

New hybrid storage solutions

Australian number three telco iiNet has partnered with Microsoft to offer virtual private server (VPS) hosting services.

The move to VPS targets businesses with a need to build and host their web applications in a secure environment without an investment in dedicated servers.

“Whether it’s used for developing complex websites or a new mobile application, a VPS will provide developers with a dedicated platform to build applications free from restrictions typically found on a shared hosting environment,” said iiNet’s General Business Manager Steve Harley.

He added that for small businesses in particular, a VPS is a cost-effective way of managing digital applications with prices starting at $29.95 per month.

The service is also pitched at the Microsoft developer community.

“As the most widely used Web platform in the market, our Web server software offers support for a variety of web application frameworks," said Microsoft Australia director Phillip Goldie.

"Support for open source applications and tools extends the platform further – providing a seamless experience for Web developers.” ®
