DiscountASP.NET Launches Free Hosted TFS Proxy Beta Service
23rd May 2012
The free TFS Proxy servers allow customers with developer team members that are located far from company's data centers to improve their productivity.
DiscountASP.NET, a Windows Hosting provider, yesterday announced launching new hosted TFS Proxy servers as a free beta service for their TFS hosting customers. The free TFS Proxy servers allow customers with developer team members that are located far from the company's data centers to improve their productivity.
The company articulates that TFS Proxy is a caching proxy server that caches local copies of source control files and by having the proxy in closer proximity to the developer's location, the developer's productivity can improve from speed enhancements. The company launched hosted TFS Proxy servers in the USA West Coast, Europe and Asia. To support this proxy service, a new Proxy Manager was introduced in the TFS control panel for customers to enable/disable and manage the TFS Proxy servers.
"We are committed to providing innovative hosting solutions that help Microsoft developers become more productive," said Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing and Business Development at DiscountASP.NET. "We have many international TFS hosting customers as well as customers with developer teams located across the globe. We hope that this new service will improve their hosting experience."
