Windows .NET Server Beta 3 Released
by Arie Slob
Hello Windows users,
Last Friday, Microsoft released Windows .NET Server Beta 3, the final beta. Windows .NET Server is the server version of Windows XP, and will eventually replace the Windows 2000 server line.
The family of new Windows servers comprise the following:
- Windows .NET Web Server. Microsoft's new offering built for front-end Web serving and hosting, providing a platform for the rapid development and deployment of Web services, sites and applications
- Windows .NET Standard Server. Tailored to meet the specific needs of smaller businesses and departmental file-and-print environments, with powerful server capabilities and ease of use and configuration
- Windows .NET Enterprise Server. Extraordinary enterprise-platform capability with complete support for business-wide computing infrastructures, line-of-business applications and e-commerce transactions
- Windows .NET Datacenter Server. Microsoft's continuing advancement of the Datacenter Program, designed to provide the highest levels of scalability and reliability, enabling critical solutions for databases; ERP; high-volume, real-time transaction processing; and server consolidation
It is expected that this beta will be followed by two Release Candidate (RC) builds in early 2002, while the final release is expected in the 2nd half of 2002.
To all our readers in the US (or anywhere else for that matter) we want to wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Due to this holiday weekend there hasn't been much news this week, and this Newsletter is a little shorter than usual.
