Free Hosted TFS Proxy Beta Service released by DiscountASP.NET

To help improve developer team productivity, DiscountASP.NET launches a hosted TFS Proxy service as a free beta for TFS hosting customers.

DiscountASP.NET, a leading innovator in hosting solutions for Microsoft developers, announces 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 DiscountASP.NET data centers to improve their productivity.

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.

DiscountASP.NET launched hosted TFS Proxy servers in three geographical regions - in the USA West Coast, Europe and Asia.
“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.”

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.
