CrystalTech Now Offering .NET 2.0 and SQL 2005

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 7, 2005

The release of .NET 2.0, SQL 2005 and Visual Studio 2005, along with the release of accompanying products such as the FREE Visual Web Developer Express and Microsoft SQL 2005 Express, represents one of the most significant advancements in the hosting industry since the initial release of .NET. As one of the largest Windows-based hosting companies in the world and a proven “first-to-market” solutions provider, CrystalTech again has shown its commitment to providing the latest technology advancements to its customers quickly and affordably.

CrystalTech has perfected the introduction of new technologies into its network, as demonstrated by the company’s ability to provide customers SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005 simultaneously. Customers can create and add new databases on the platform of their choosing from within CrystalTech’s .NET-based Control Center, and transition at their own pace. Likewise, the introduction of the ASP.NET 2.0 framework to CrystalTech’s shared servers will be very similar, and provide customers the flexibility of working on .NET 1.1 or the new .NET 2.0 framework.

“We’re very excited to announce the introduction of Microsoft’s latest technologies into our service and product lines on the same day of their release,” said Tim Uzzanti, CEO of CrystalTech. “CrystalTech’s size and close relationship with vendors like Microsoft have not only allowed us to offer our customers advanced looks at the latest technologies through invitation-only beta programs, but also help provide our customers access to these live products first, thereby giving our customers a competitive advantage.”

“In addition, not only has Microsoft exceeded all expectations in the technological advancements these releases present, but they have also exceeded expectations in their marketing methods and understanding of their growing customer base,” Mr. Uzzanti continued. As an example, with all releases, Microsoft is providing FREE Express editions that are extremely powerful and thereby extremely beneficial to a very large number of existing and new developers. “I feel that, with Visual Web Developer Express and SQL Express, Microsoft will challenge the open source community and could potentially convert open source developers to the Microsoft Platform. There’s no doubt that this is an exciting time to be a programmer and web developer.”
