OVH offering free beta-test dedicated servers to North American users!

Aug 3, 2012 at 3:58 PM

Go here to sign up for 1 of 10000 dedicated servers they're using to beta test their new North American facility:

Requirements are a twitter account (and you must follow them @OVH)  and an email.


I'm waiting mine to install. OVH gives you the choice between the following Windows:

Hyper-V Server R2 or;
Windows Server 2012 Datacenter RC 

So basically this is good testing out aVFP under IIS8.

PS.  I'm not affiliated with OVH or whatsoever, I just wanted to share this to the group for someone interested on testing aVFP under IIS8.

Anybody that installs to this, please report back here how it went.

Downloaded and installed aVFP 551 installer and it's working.  Below is the XML file I used when I installd IIS in Windows 2012 Server 64.  I think you can install using this XML under powershell using:

install-windowsfeature -ConfigurationFilePath (ExportedConfig.xml)

It's really fast since it got the following specs:

i3-2130 @3.4Ghz


1Terabyte of HD

Running speed test @ ISPGEEKS.COM resulted in 28.88MBps.
