SQL Server Hosting Toolkit Released
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
Database Publishing Wizard Community Technology Preview 1
The Database Publishing Wizard enables the deployment of SQL Server 2005 databases into a hosted environment on either a SQL Server 2000 or 2005 server. It generates a SQL script file which can be used to recreate the database in shared hosting environments where the only connectivity to a server is through a web-based control panel with a scripting window.
