With this release, GoGrid becomes one of the first Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers to offer Windows Server 2008 "in the cloud." The new Windows Server 2008 operating system from Microsoft sets new benchmarks for server stability, manageability, and security; therefore, interest from Windows Server customers wanting to try it out has been high. GoGrid customers can now deploy Windows Server 2008 servers in just a few minutes for as little as 19 cents an hour, with no commitment.

GoGrid is the Cloud Computing service that enables system administrators to quickly and easily create, deploy, load-balance and manage Windows and Linux cloud servers within minutes. GoGrid offers true "Control in the Cloud™" with its unique web-based, Graphical User Interface (GUI) which allows for "point and click" deployment of complex and flexible network infrastructures, which include load balancing and multiple web and database servers, all set up with icons through the GUI.

Initial Windows Server 2008 offerings on GoGrid include both 32-bit and 64-bit preconfigured templates. GoGrid users select the desired operating system and then choose preconfigured templates in order to minimize time to deploy. Pre-configurations include:

* Windows Server 2008 Standard with Internet Information Services 7.0 (IIS 7)
* Windows Server 2008 Standard with IIS 7 and SQL Server 2005 Express Edition
* Windows Server 2008 Standard with IIS 7, SQL Server 2005 Express Edition and ASP.NET
