DiscountASP.NET unveils SQL 2008 hosting

Advanced ASP.NET hosting provider, DiscountASP.NET, has launched as a new hosting add-on option in both US and UK datacenter locations, its Microsoft SQL 2008 hosting, available to all DiscountASP.NET customers.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 is a major update to its enterprise database. Some of the SQL Server 2008 feature enhancements include new data types, such as geospatial data types and date/time data types.

In addition, integrated full text search, Language Integrated Query (LINQ), sparse columns, and large user-defined types are improvements that will help drive next-generation data-centric applications.

Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing at DiscountASP.NET noted, "One of our goals is to be an early adopter of new Microsoft technology. We are proud to be among the first hosts to officially launch SQL 2008 hosting along with a suite of SQL 2008 management control panel tools.

We also wanted to make sure that all of our customers have the opportunity to access next generation technology, so we've made SQL 2008 hosting available in both of our datacenters, located in the US and Europe."

With the launch of SQL 2008 hosting, DiscountASP.NET introduces new SQL 2008 management tools in their control panel, including an on-demand SQL 2008 database backup tool, an automated SQL 2008 database restore tool, and an automated Attach MDF File tool. Customers can manage their SQL 2008 databases with Microsoft SQL Management Studio.

DiscountASP.NET provides Microsoft Windows hosting, as a Microsoft Gold Certified partner. DiscountASP.NET is one of the first hosts to offer Windows 2008 shared hosting and was recently voted Best ASP.NET Hosting Service in the asp.netPRO Magazine 2008 Readers' Choice poll for the fourth consecutive year.

Through strong word-of-mouth and their commitment to ASP.NET and SQL technology, DiscountASP.NET has become the choice for affordable enterprise-class ASP.NET web hosting.
