Today, we announce launching support for Microsoft IIS Database Manager 1.0 for our Windows 2008 hosting platform, allowing our customers to manage local and remote databases from within IIS Manager. We also announce enhancing the user experience by integrating a SQL backup and SQL restore solution within the DB Manager interface! This is a new way to backup and restore SQL databases.
The IIS Database Manager is an out-of-band IIS UI module released by Microsoft that allows the user to manage their local and remote databases from within IIS Manager. Once connected, IIS DB Manager provides an array of functionalities including managing tables, views, stored procedures and data as well as running ad hoc queries. IIS Database Manager provides support for both SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2005 databases.
To improve the user experience, we integrated the DB Manager UI with SQL backup and SQL restore functionality. With this enhancement, customers can use DBManager within IIS Manager to back up their SQL databases and save their backups within the App_Data folder. Customers can also use DB Manager to select from a list of previously saved backups and restore a specific SQL backup.
