Microsoft Web Platform – beta released


Microsoft has announced and release the first beta of the Microsoft Web Platform.

The Microsoft Web Platform is a free tool that makes it simple to download and install the latest components of the Microsoft Web Platform, including the IIS7, SQL Server Express, .NET Framework and Visual Web Developer.

The Microsoft Web Platform is a reliable, high-performance web stack that is capable of hosting both ASP.NET and PHP applications on a single server, and can scale to run the largest sites on the web. The Microsoft Web Platform, including SQL Server, Visual Studio, IIS7 and the .NET Framework, is available for free, and can be obtained with the new Microsoft Web Platform Installer, a tool that both simplifies installation and keeps your server up-to-date.
