I am pround to announce that we launched FREE SQL Server 2012 beta hosting (code name Denali) for our web hosting customers as part of our labs program. This is an opportunity for our customers to test out the next-generation in SQL Server database technology that will be available next year.
Every DiscountASP.NET webhosting account can enable a free 100 mb SQL 2012 beta database through their Control Panel.
Remember, this is a beta product and is intended for testing and experimentation so we do not recommend running production sites with this beta database. With the SQL 2012 beta hosting service, the SQL backup/restore tools, Attach MDF File tool and SQL Shrink tools are all available. However, the SQL 2012 beta server is not part of our nighly backups.
The SQL 2012 beta hosting program will end a week after the official release of SQL 2012. Of course, we will be notifying users via email before we take down the service.
For more information about SQL Server 2012, visit the Microsoft SQL web site.
If you run into any issues or have feedback, please post in our Community Forum.
This is the type of value added services and previews that we at DiscountASP.NET are continually working on to provide our customers with access to the latest cutting-edge Microsoft technologies as early as possible. We hope you enjoy the beta.
