We are pleased to announce the release of Windows Server 2019 Datacenter Cloud Server operating system for use in our Public Cloud.
Although this is a major release for Windows Server, Microsoft has kept the user interface and administration largely the same as Windows Server
2016 Datacenter. This will allow users to dive right into using Windows Server 2019 without a learning curve.
Some of the new features that have been introduced in Windows Server 2019 include:
This new feature provides insights into the functioning of your server and helps predict issues that may occur. This feature is designed to help cut down on reactive maintenance costs.
Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP):
ATP exposes memory and kernel level attacks and responds by suppressing malicious files and terminating malicious processes to help keep your system protected.
Storage Migration Service:
Storage Migration Service makes it easier to migrate servers to a newer version of Windows Server. It provides a graphical tool that inventories, transfers, and configures data from old servers on to newer servers. It can optionally move the identities/users of the old servers to the new servers, so that the applications and users don’t have to change anything.
This feature makes it possible to run Windows and Linux-based containers on the same Windows Server host using the same docker daemon.
Windows Time Service:
Windows Time Service provides provide more precise and frequent time syncing than the previous versions of Windows Server.
Login to provision 2019 Windows server in less than 30 seconds!
We are happy to announce the availability of Windows Containers with Docker. This enables Windows users to package applications into images that can be run on any Windows 2016 server. Users can now deploy and scale their Windows Containers across Atlantic.Net’s global Cloud.
Atlantic.Net is always working to provide our customers with the latest and greatest! We are happy to announce that FreeBSD 11 is now available to provision in our Cloud Hosting Portal.
If you have not already signed up, please sign up for a Cloud Hosting account here, and spin up a server in less than 30 seconds.

We are excited to announce the release of a new feature called Two-Step Login (aka: Two-Factor Authentication, 2TFA, TFA). This new feature provides you an extra layer of security when accessing your Cloud account via the Atlantic.Net Cloud Portal.
When you enable Two-Step Login, you’ll be required to provide a username and password like you normally do plus a randomly generated verification code.
You’ll be able to get the verification code by text message or by using a simple authenticator app for a smartphone.
Most services only have one layer of security to protect user accounts: a password. With Two-Step Login, even if a bad guy hacks your password, he’ll still need your phone to get into your account.
If you need low latency and fast access to the European market, with the same power, speed, and reliability Atlantic.Net is known for, our new London, UK Cloud location has you covered! You can now create and manage fast SSD Cloud Hosting in our London, UK location via the control panel or API.
Earlier today, a security vulnerability, CVE-2015-3456 (VENOM), was publicly announced. This vulnerability affects the widely used KVM/QEMU virtualization hypervisor platform that we use to power our SSD cloud hosting servers.
We are rolling out the necessary security patches to address this vulnerability to all applicable infrastructure. In order to ensure that the patches are effective at resolving the vulnerability, you may see a very brief interruption in service (a few seconds) while your Cloud Server is switched to run on the updated version of our infrastructure.
A very small percentage of Cloud Servers may require a reboot to complete this process. If this is necessary for one of your cloud hosting servers, you will be contacted by our support team so this can be done with as little inconvenience as possible.
We will keep you posted on progress.
UPDATE 05/14/15: Atlantic.Net has successfully mitigated the VENOM vulnerability in our USA-West-1 (San Francisco), USA-Central-1 (Dallas), USA-East-2 (New York) and Canada-East-1 (Toronto) Cloud locations. USA-East-1 (Orlando) is almost complete, however, there is a small percentage of Cloud Servers that will need to be manually rebooted. If you are one of the few affected, an email will be sent to you shortly with further instructions.
UPDATE 05/14/15: Atlantic.Net sent notification to the small percentage of cloud server hosting that needed to be manually rebooted in USA-East-1 (Orlando). Those that were notified have until 11:59 pm ET on May 15, 2015 to power cycle their Cloud Servers per the instructions provided in the email. If they have not done so by the previously mentioned time, we will shutdown their Cloud Servers and power them back on.
UPDATE 05/16/15: Atlantic.Net has now successfully mitigated the VENOM vulnerability in USA-East-1 (Orlando), and as previously noted, all other Cloud locations.
