Windows Hosting Provider OrcsWeb Provides Complete ASP.NET 4.5 Support

September 19, 2012 by  

Web Hosting ServicesCharlotte, NC – ORCS Web Inc., a web hosting provider specializing in Microsoft Windows cloud server and dedicated server hosting solutions announced that ASP.Net 4.5 is now available across all platforms. Having worked with Microsoft through the beta stage, OrcsWeb brings over a year of experience in configuring and supporting .Net 4.5. This announcement rides the heels of their recent announcement of full support for Windows Server 2012.

This latest release is the next generation of Microsoft’s development framework and comes with several new features and improvements for developers utilizing OrcsWeb’s managed hosting solutions. Among these updates include improved performance, increased control, improved support for asynchronous programming, a new dataflow library and improved support for parallel debugging and performance analysis.

“ASP.NET 4.5 is the most exciting release of the .NET framework yet. Microsoft has made significant performance improvements in both application startup and memory utilization that customers will recognize immediately,” according to Jeff Graves, Director of Technology. “Security improvements help web developers easily protect their application from malicious users with unobtrusive validation and the baked-in AntiXSS library. Asynchronous HTTP calls are much easier to manage with the new await command. The best part is that OrcsWeb clients can take full advantage of these features today, across all of our platforms.”

Some key improvements you will find built into .NET 4.5 include:
ASP.NET 4.5 uses bundling (which combines separate JavaScript files for faster loading) and minification (which reduces the size of JavaScript and CSS files by removing unneeded characters).
ASP.NET 4.5 can read, write, and flush a stream asynchronously. This asynchronicity lets you send data to a client incrementally without tying up operating system threads.
The new async and await keywords make it easier to write asynchronous HTTP modules and asynchronous HTTP handlers.
ASP.NET 4.5 provides ways to read un-validated request data so that you can allow users to pass markup for selected fields or pages.

All new OrcsWeb clients will receive .NET 4.5 by default. Any current Windows Cloud Server or Dedicated Server clients should contact OrcsWeb to be upgraded.
