Atlantic.Net Press Releases

Alternative operating system focused on features, speed and stability for startup and developer community

ORLANDO, FL – September  03, 2014 — Atlantic.Net, a SSD cloud VPS hosting solutions provider, today announced the availability of FreeBSD, a complete operating system used to power modern servers, desktops and embedded platforms to its Orlando, Dallas and Toronto data centers. The new operating system will be made available system wide as part of Atlantic.Net’s full line of operating systems, including Windows Server 2012R, and various flavors of Linux. With FreeBSD, users receive an OS that is committed to delivering the best stability, performance, and functionality.

Atlantic.Net is among the first of a new generation of hosting solutions providers to offer a reliable, yet regularly requested substitute for Linux. With this, startups and indie developers alike can now launch their idea for a fraction of the price typically charged – $0.00135 per hour – with usage calculated on a per second basis. FreeBSD is a win-win situation that will promote entrepreneurial innovation and the wellbeing of the digital ecosystem.

“FreeBSD by design is open source, and is optimized for freedom and flexibility. With this new addition, we can pass these benefits onto our customers to deliver a robust BSD-based OS,” said Marty Puranik, President and CEO of Atlantic.Net. “FreeBSD will help push startup innovation and assist entrepreneurs in launching the next great idea.”

FreeBSD provides users with access to a library of independent applications. Its advanced networking, security and storage features have made FreeBSD the platform of choice for many of the busiest websites and most pervasive embedded networking and storage devices. FreeBSD understands the relationship between various services and will run them simultaneously or independently, as it best fits the unique situation.

In collaboration with FreeBSD, Atlantic.Net also announced today the availability of a new resize feature that will allow customers to enlarge their server and capabilities. Unlike many hosting solutions providers, resize allows users to enlarge the disk/RAM/processor, rather than just the RAM or processor. FreeBSD and resize features are just two new services on the roadmap for Atlantic.Net as the company continues to build and grow its infrastructure over the next 12 months.
