Windows VPS hosting is a flexible, powerful and affordable solution for any business that is ready for serious growth. If your business relies on Microsoft-based products and if you are in need of a remote server, a Windows VPS may be just the right solution for you. In this post, we'll look at some of the reasons why using Windows VPS hosting is a good idea for your business.
Your employees are familiar with Windows operating system.
People like what is familiar. Windows server environment is very similar to standard Windows OS that most users are familiar with. This means that your employees will feel right at home on a Windows VPS, as if they were using their PCs. With all of the training that would be required when trying to migrate to a foreign operating system, it might be more trouble than it's worth. Using a platform that is familiar to your company will save your business time and money.
Full stack integrity.
Microsoft is a very large company and has been in business for many years. Some would argue that they helped create the PC industry. The fact that Microsoft has been around for so long and had as much success as they have had makes it possible for them to create environments where every moving part is made by Microsoft. This provides the benefit of having integrity in the design and implementation of their products. Microsoft is very similar to Apple in this regard.
Microsoft is able to control every aspect of their stack and integrate their different products to work well together. This is something that is lacking in many open source projects. By their very nature, open source projects are fragmented and constructed of desperate parts, resulting in products that often lack in refinement.
Since the early days of computing, Microsoft has been there contributing to the personal computer market. They have had a hand in creating the PC as it stands today, by designing a user-friendly operating system that can be installed on any PC. Microsoft is one of the most successful software companies, and at one time they had a monopoly on the market. They have been in this industry for such a long time and have been able to handle so many issues that have to be dealt with, that it would be extremely difficult to find a problem that Microsoft has not faced.
Because of the integrity of the Microsoft stack, they are able to bring the level of refinement to their products that makes them extremely easy to use. There's no need to spend great amounts of time and money to make sure that their products are compatible with thousands of desperate products. They are able to spend the time more productively and fine-tune their software so that their system is responsive and does what it says it's going to do.
That is not to say that open source projects are not refined in any way. But the fact is, they all rely on some kind of third party, or even forth party. They are almost always at the mercy of somebody else for the most critical systems. That means that they have to use outdated versions of their tools just to maintain compatibility with their project. And they are not be able to utilize the newest tools available.
Security updates are rolled out on a continual basis for all of the Microsoft versions. With the exception of versions that have reached their end of life, newer versions are made fairly secure at any moment in time. Because of this, Windows is considered to be more secure than Linux. Due to the fragmented nature of Linux's many distributions and the differences between them, the updates for Linux are not always possible to do. And coupled with the software that you are running on the Linux system, it makes things more complicated when doing a system upgrade.
Most likely, your company is filled with people that have only used Windows in their life. And so, to switch over to Linux would not be worth the effort.
