Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) January 06, 2015

AURO Cloud Computing, Canada’s leader in cloud computing and infrastructure running OpenStack, has announced the general availability of its Windows Server images for their Canadian Cloud Computing platform. The new images bring Windows Servers and Microsoft SQL Servers to AURO's cloud built on OpenStack that delivers a highly scalable environment that is ideal for Windows Web Platform and web hosting. The update includes testing and developing applications and production-grade software as a service (SaaS) applications, with industry-best support for businesses and customers who are deploying Windows-based servers, including ASP.NET, ASP.NET AJAX, Silverlight and Internet Information Server (IIS).

With AURO Cloud Computing, you can run any compatible Windows-based solution in their highly reliable, cost effective, 100% Canadian cloud computing platform. Customers are able to manage their resources using open APIs, or utilize the cloud dashboard to configure, launch, or shut down Windows instances almost instantaneously. The initial set of Windows Server and Microsoft SQL Server images are focused on supporting customers who are running web applications and get instant access to a Windows environment for application hosting, data processing, distributed testing and any other application that requires Windows software on an hourly basis.

"We're constantly looking for ways to increase the flexibility and choices customers can find with our Canadian Cloud Computing platform. By adding Microsoft’s Server products, we are opening up the Canadian Cloud to businesses and enterprises who are ready to make the move into the cloud, but have been unable to, due to cloud limitations,” said Matt McKinney, Chief Strategy Officer at AURO. “Whether it is cloud onboarding, Windows Server support, or highly reliable cloud infrastructure, AURO focuses on making Canadian Cloud Computing available to everyone.”

AURO was built using OpenStack to give Canada its first true enterprise public cloud that can support a wide range of cloud computing requirements. With a free account, open APIs, Canadian cloud storage and enhanced management tools, customers can get immediate access to a single platform that delivers highly scalable public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud services, including operational and architectural compatibility with AWS. In addition, businesses have, for the first time, cloud computing pricing that matches or beats all other providers.
