Windows Server 2008 Hosting Launch

2008 is shaping up to be a very interesting year for those interested in Microsoft's hosting products.
In February, Microsoft will be launching its complement of 2008 development and hosting products. Microsoft will be holding over 200 worldwide events to mark the launch of Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008.
The first of these events will be held in Los Angeles, California on February 27, 2008 at the Nokia Theater and Los Angeles Convention Center. As a Microsoft Gold Certified web hosting partner, Windows Server 2008 hosting company, HostMySite.com, will be in attendance at the event. HostMySite.com is also a Bronze level corporate sponsor.

The theme of this year's products revolves around the concept of "heroes". These are outstanding individuals with extreme skills and talents related to specific Microsoft technologies. You can get a sense of the
campaign by visiting the Microsoft-developed ''Heroes Happen Here'' website at: www.microsoft.com/heroeshappenhere.
Mr. Matt Ferrari from HostMySite.com will be featured as a Microsoft ''Hero''.

Bill Staples, Product Unit Manager for IIS at Microsoft commented on the Bronze level sponsorship and participation of HostMySite.com in the launch event: ''We at Microsoft are pleased to include Microsoft Gold Certified web hosting partner, HostMySite.com in this year's wave launch event in Los Angeles. HostMySite.com has always been a leader in Windows-based hosting products and services. It is a credit to the HostMySite.com organization that Engineer Matt Ferrari has also been identified as a Microsoft Hero due to his expertise and leadership in Microsoft web hosting technologies.''

The keynote for the first launch event will be delivered by the first business manager hired by Bill Gates in 1980 - and now serving as Chief Executive Officer at Microsoft, Steve Ballmer. According to the current agenda mapped out by Microsoft, the launch event will consist of:

Breakout Sessions - These are essentially classroom sessions to familiarize participants with the new products - Windows Server 2008,
Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008.

Hands On Labs - This will give attendees the opportunity to actually try out and test the software with Microsoft experts standing by to help and answer questions.

Microsoft and Partner Pavilions - Displays and information from Microsoft and partner companies that will enhance the software products.

Chalk Talks - A chance for developers and programmers to speak directly with the software engineers who wrote the code.

Ask the Experts - Members of the development team for
Windows Server 2008,
Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008 answer any more questions thrown at them.

As for the product specs and changes coming, here are just a few of the cool things that Windows Server 2008 will let our customers do when fully implemented in the hosting environment:

* Install SSL certificates remotely.

* Change permissions on web folders through the tool.

Make application pool state information changes, as each client will run in their own application pool. This provides application isolation; so ideally if one client is running into a coding issue it is less likely to negatively impact another site or client on the same server.

The launch event runs from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm on February 27, 2008. To view details about the launch event or to register, please visit:


Windows launch wave events will be held in over 200 locations worldwide throughout 2008. So if you are near any major city, there will be an event coming soon to your area.
