SQL Server Hosting Toolkit

Here's something I've been meaning to post for a while.

It's a little nugget of gold called the SQL Server Hosting Toolkit by the Hosting Toolkit Team.

The goal of the SQL Server Hosting Toolkit is to enable a great experience around SQL Server in shared hosting environments.

The toolkit will eventually consist of a suite of tools and services that hosters can deploy for use by their customers. It will also serve as an incubation vehicle for tools that hosting customers can download and use directly, regardless of whether their hoster has deployed the toolkit. See the Project Roadmap for details on where we're going.

  • For Hosting Customers
  • For Hosters
    • The Database Publishing Services are a set of ASP.NET web services you can easily deploy to make it simple for your customers to deploy SQL Server databases into your environment.

Handy that Bar Camp is coming soon to Sydney. We should add this to the list of things.
