ORCS Web Successfully Launches Visual Studio 2010 and Web Deployment Tool Beta Program

ORCS Web, Inc., a specialist in Microsoft Windows-based Internet hosting solutions for businesses, has created a robust Visual Studio 2010 and Web Deployment Tool Beta Program alongside Microsoft. The trial program, offered for a limited time, allows developers to create a complimentary hosting account to test product features and then provide feedback to Microsoft and ORCS Web on their respective solutions.

While this program is not designed for production hosting, it allows developers to gain familiarity with the Microsoft Web Deployment Tool (MSDeploy), which is an impressive new technology allowing rapid and secure Web site deployment. Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2010 delivers tooling and framework support for the latest innovations in application architecture and development, including the extension of development to cloud computing and the ability to easily construct applications that simultaneously utilize the latest multi-core hardware.

ORCS Web’s beta hosting program utilizes the ASP.NET 4.0 trial environment and boasts 200 MB of Web space, 100 MB of SQL Server 2008 space for accounts as well as the exceptional client support and service delivery for which ORCS Web is known worldwide.
