Dedicated servers with Windows or Linux
Windows or Linux? It’s an age-old question, and one that you probably have your own answer to ‐ it all depends on personal preference and the needs of your project. Select your preferred operating system on your Fasthosts dedicated server, with Ubuntu 16.04, CentOS 7 and Windows Server 2016 now available.
Windows Server 2016
Windows Server 2016 adds vastly improved Hyper-V containers for isolated application environments, as well as shielded virtual machines that make use of hardware-based security such as BitLocker. As the latest iteration of Windows Server, it’s faster and lighter than previous versions.
Linux: Ubuntu 16.04 and CentOS 7
Choose either Ubuntu 16.04 or CentOS 7 for your Linux dedicated server. Whether you need the latest features of Ubuntu or the stability of CentOS, both of these Linux distributions provide a highly reliable operating system capable of supporting advanced projects and dynamic web content.
