August 13, 2013 – DiscountASP.NET, a leading innovator in Windows Server hosting, announces a no-cost ASP.NET 4.5.1 hosting sandbox on Windows Server 2012 R2 for the developer community.

In June Microsoft announced the .NET Framework 4.5.1 preview at the Microsoft //BUILD conference. The new update builds on top of .NET 4.5 and includes new features such as async-aware debugging, ADO.NET idle connection resiliency, and ASP.NET app suspension.

"We are offering the developer community with this ASP.NET 4.5.1 hosting sandbox to provide an opportunity to get early experience with the new framework now," said Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing and Business Development at DiscountASP.NET. "We’ve done many of these betas with previous technologies and our labs program is one way we give back to the developer community."

This sandbox hosting program is a limited program offered as an open beta on a first come first serve basis. The beta hosting sandbox comes with 50 MB of disk space and 50 MB of SQL Server 2012 database space and 50 MB of MySQL database space.
