The InstantASP Cloud

All our hosted services are built upon the Microsoft Windows Azure hosting platform and are hosted in state of the art data centers fully managed & operated by Microsoft.

By default our primary data center is located in Ireland. Our sister data center for real-time geo-replication is located in the Netherlands. Both data centers are owned and operated by Microsoft and are part of the Windows Azure cloud infrastructure.

As we are hosted upon Windows Azure we can easily deploy your InstantForum or InstantKB installation in a region closer to your geographical location to ensure minimum latency & maximum performance for you and your users. To discuss your requirements of course please don't hesitate to contact us.


Windows Azure runs in geographically dispersed data centers that comply with key industry standards, such as ISO/IEC 27001:2005, for security and reliability. In addition to data center, network, and personnel security practices, InstantASP incorporates security practices at the application and platform layers to enhance security for our hosted customers.

InstantASP never has access to your physical machine and all remote access is strictly controlled with specific maintenance windows and additional two factor authentication.


All hosted customers are fully isolated within separate Virtual Machines and separate databases within Windows Azure. You won't be sharing your disk space or database with any other customer.
