Microsoft is adding support for OpenSSH client and server to its Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10 version 1809. The tech giant had announced the preview of Windows Server 2019 in March this year, which became generally available in October. It is the latest version of Windows Server that addresses four important customer challenge areas: hybrid workloads, security, application platform, and hyper-converged infrastructure. OpenSSH is the open source version of Secure Scripting Host (SSH) tools used to administer Linux and other non-Windows operating systems for cross-platform management of remote systems. The OpenSSH comes with a set of client and server solutions used to enable secure remote login, remote file transfer, and public or private key pair management.

Siauliai, Lithuania – Ever since we opened our first data center in 2005, our ambition has been to become a key global player in the Virtual Private Server (VPS) market. With thousands of satisfied customers in over 70 countries, we’ve been able to realize our ambition and establish ourselves as a go-to provider of reliable web hosting services in Lithuania and beyond.

Now, we’re bringing two of our most popular services to the United States: Linux KVM NVMe and Windows KVM NVMe VPS hosting.


VPS hosting has been growing in popularity because it gives customers complete control over their environment, allowing them to tweak it precisely for their needs. As our customers would happily attest, VPS hosting provides increased stability and reliability over shared hosting, and it brings significant cost savings when compared with in-house hosting.

Customers that choose VPS hosting can pay only for what they really need and instantly scale their resources based on current demand. Adding more memory or purchasing additional processing power is a matter of a simple click, making VPS hosting ideal for agile startups that can go from a thousand users to millions in a matter of months or even weeks.

Our VPS hosting services are backed by high-performance NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) storage, which delivers up to 6 times better performance compared with classic SSD disks, transmitting data at up to 30 Gbps. NVMe was designed for both enterprise and client applications needing acceleration in critical data, and it eliminates bottlenecks and provides capabilities to meet the very demanding and time-sensitive requirements of cloud computing.

Because we use KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) as our virtualization infrastructure of choice, our customers can simultaneously manage several virtual machines and their configurations while enjoying superior security provided by the Linux kernel, an open-source monolithic Unix-like computer operating system kernel that powers nearly 70 percent of the top 10 million Alexa domains.

Apart from the use of cutting-edge technologies, our US customers can benefit from our strategically chosen location: Chicago. Widely known as the premier carrier hub for the Midwest, Chicago is arguably the best location in the United States for providers of hosting services, which is why it’s also home to Motorola Solutions, NetSuite, Snapsheet, Glassdoor, Sprout Social, Flexera, and many other internet-centric companies.

Of course, we’re bringing with us our core principles, which govern everything we do, and which have helped us thrive for well over 10 years. We consider our customers to be the important part of our business and provide reliable 24×7 support with guaranteed response times to help our customers solve any problems they may have in a timely manner.

We are firmly committed to providing our services at competitive prices without sacrificing reliability. Our customers benefit from a 99.97 percent network uptime guarantee, which has earned us Great Uptime Award from HostAdvice, a leading web hosting information center.

Last but not least, we at Bacloud continue to invest in new technology and improve our services in every way we can to make them more attractive to existing and new customers alike. We back everything we do with a 30-day money back guarantee because we’re confident in our services, and we encourage you to try them yourself to see what makes us stand out from the crowd.
