(PRWEB) April 25, 2005

ServePath, the West Coast’s leading dedicated server hosting specialist and a Microsoft Certified Partner, is one of the first Internet Service Providers to offer hosted Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Workgroup Edition.

Microsoft has just released this new, lower-cost version of its flagship database, Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Workgroup Edition, and selected ServePath as a go to market partner. Workgroup Edition offers an affordable way for small and medium businesses to run their own copy of SQL Server for dynamic web sites, e-commerce, and other applications that require a high performance database.

Customers can now get SQL Server 2000, Workgroup Edition for as low as $ 75 per month in addition to the cost of a dedicated server web hosting plan. This new price point is a breakthrough for high traffic web sites that have previously had to either spend thousands of dollars to obtain SQL Server, or rely on the lower performance of free databases or web hosting that shared a single SQL Server copy among many web sites.

“Web sites that use MySQL or other free databases can perform properly,” said John Keagy, President of ServePath. “But for superior performance and reliability under heavy traffic or intensive usage, ServePath has always recommended a Windows Server 2003 dedicated server platform with Microsoft SQL Server. Now with Microsoft SQL Server Workgroup Edition, that solution is finally affordable to any small to medium sized business.”

ServePath’s dedicated hosting solutions for SQL Server and Windows Server 2003 are immediately available. For more information please contact ServePath at www.ServePath.com, or call 1-866-321-7284.
