New Forex VPS Build, New Features: Windows Server 2012

This week we are releasing a major update to our default Windows Server 2012 Standard system build. The new version includes performance upgrades, new software, and additional optimization over the previous release.

Most noticeably, the new build sports an updated look on the desktop, with some improved UI also. Control Panel and Chrome are easily accessible from the taskbar:

Before Windows Server 2012 Standard was released to mainstream support, Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise served as our primary Forex VPS template. It is still updated and available for use, though Windows Server 2012 is recommended for optimized performance and forward compatibility.
