Public Cloud Services

Operating systems and software

A cloud server for every need, ready to use in 30 seconds!

OpenStack is the platform on which Hosting Solutions' cloud computing is based and it supports many Linux distributions and all Windows Server and desktop releases.

In addition to the operating system, the Hosting Solutions team provides a set of software solutions for specific needs. This is the case, for example, of the solution that involves the activation of a server with Wordpress already installed and optimized, or the solution that involves the installation and configuration of ownCloud, the best open source platform for file sharing and document storage.

The Hosting Solutions team keeps constantly updated the list of available operating systems and software (commonly referred to as images), to meet the requirements of all customers.

Below is a list of supported images that can be chosen directly when creating a new cloud server. All operating systems have 64bit architecture unless otherwise specified.

For any necessity (versions, architecture, Operative Systems distributions or other additional applications) that is not available in the list above, it is possible to request a customised image by contacting Hosting Solutions technical assistance by ticket or telephone. This image will be created and made available to the customer, at no additional cost. Images containing software that belong to our customers will remain exclusive property of the custom.
