Releasing Debian 7.0 shortly after its release demonstrates our continued commitment to customers

New Debian version Linux 7.0 available at RapidSwitch

UK dedicated server hosting provider is early adopter of major new Debian version aka Wheezy

RapidSwitch, a leading European supplier of self-managed dedicated server solutions and part of cloud computing company iomart Group plc, has become one of the first UK hosting companies to offer Debian 7.0, the major new core Linux distribution.

Code named Wheezy, Debian 7.0 was released on May 4 after months in development. This new stable version of Debian includes multi-arch support which allows users to install packages from multiple architectures on the same machine, meaning you can now install both 32- and 64-bit software on the same machine and have all the relevant dependencies correctly resolved, automatically.

Neil Christie, Commercial Director of RapidSwitch, says, “Releasing Debian 7.0 shortly after its release demonstrates our continued commitment to customers to start utilising the latest releases of operating systems to perform comprehensive testing and drive their own product development.”

Debian 7.0 is now available across the whole RapidSwitch server range. It includes specific tools to deploy private clouds, an improved staller and a complete set of multimedia codecs and front-ends which remove the need for third party repositories.

From its data centre in Maidenhead, Berkshire, RapidSwitch hosts over 10,000 dedicated servers for a wide range of clients with 24/7 technical support.
