CHARLOTTE, NC – August 6, 2008 – ORCS Web is pleased to announce it is supporting Microsoft’s SQL Server 2008 as of August 6, the first day of its release. This is possible through ORCS Web’s close working relationship with Microsoft, which has enabled extensive testing by the ORCS Web technical team since 2007, including beta-level client hosting sites for several months.
ORCS Web’s web hosting customers who are currently running SQL Server 2005 can be upgraded free of charge, with the transition managed through cooperation with individual site administrators to ensure a smooth migration. “We are delighted to be among the first to offer this service to our customers,” explained ORCS Web President Brad Kingsley. All new servers will support SQL Server 2008. Existing ORCS Web customers should email email@example.com to request a new SQL Server 2008 database or a copy of their existing database running SQL Server 2008. New customers should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the company’s website at http://www.orcsweb.com for information on the range of web hosting solutions that will best meet their needs.
