Microsoft To Update Hosting Solution
Microsoft will ship early next month an update to its Web hosting package that
takes advantage of recently released products and technologies.
The Microsoft Solution for Windows-based Hosting Version 4.0 aims to help Web
hosting providers to quickly launch new services and increase operational efficiency
through tools, scripts and code samples, the company said in a statement.
The update adds support for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and for ASP.NET 2.0,
enabling service providers to offer managed services to customers and resellers,
including hosted databases using SQL Server 2005 and security update management.
Microsoft's Solution for Windows-based Hosting 4.0 will be available
on Aug. 4.
