I just received a mail from Heather Schwenk through my blog about the Microsoft Global Hosting Summit 2007. Here is an excerpt of that mail that I wanted to share with you:
Today at the Microsoft Hosting Summit, Microsoft announced updates to two solutions for hosting service providers: Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration (HMC) Version 4.0 and Microsoft Solution for Windows-based Hosting Version 4.5.
Following are key highlights:
- The solutions take advantage of the enhancements to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, improving communications and information sharing, and work productivity for SMBs.
- Utilizing Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, HMC 4.0 provides anywhere access for users, built-in protection from spam and viruses, and operational efficiency for IT administrators.
- Windows-based Hosting Version 4.5 leverages SharePoint 3.0, which provides 40 customized templates designed to help address specific business needs, such as time management, accounting, and project tracking, and new tools to create Web-based content, such as blogs and wikis.
In addition, video clips from the Microsoft Hosting Summit 2007 that highlight these new solutions will be available at http://www.mshostingsummit.spaces.live.com.
Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration Version 4.0 will be available worldwide in April 2007. More information is available at http://www.microsoft.com/hostedmessaging.
Microsoft Solution for Windows-based Hosting Version 4.5 is available immediately. More information on Windows-based Hosting can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/serviceproviders/solutions/windowsbasedhosting.mspx.
Thanks Heather for sharing this information with
