BizTalk Server Best Practices Analyzer 1.2 and Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 CTP

From the “server” category in our file system, we have two offerings for you, directly from the Redmond-based software giant Microsoft. The first offering is BizTalk Server Best Practices Analyzer 1.2, a tool you can use to evaluate the configuration of the BizTalk installation – it works with various BizTalk Server versions (including BizTalk server 2006, 2006 R2 and BizTalk Server 2009) and various versions of Windows (Windows Server 2003 Sp2 and 2008, Vista SP1 and even XP Service Pack 3).

Microsoft Solution Specialist, Chris Vidotto, comments: “The BizTalk Server Best Practices Analyzer performs configuration-level verification by reading and reporting only. The Best Practices Analyzer gathers data from different information sources, such as Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) classes, SQL Server databases, and registry entries. The Best Practices Analyzer uses the data to evaluate the deployment configuration. The Best Practices Analyzer does not modify any system settings, and is not a self-tuning tool.”


The second download offering that comes from Microsoft is Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 CTP (Community Technical Preview). Based on Windows Server 2008 R2, and coming precisely one year after the release of windows HPC Server 2008 Beta 2, the CTP provides an early look at the functionality HPC Server 2008 R2 will provide. One functionality HPC Server 2008 R2 CTP comes with is the setup of clusters.

“HPC Server 2008 allowed people who weren’t supercomputing geniuses to set up and run a cluster, easily and quickly. Our CTP includes a number of enhancements to our distributed management infrastructure, including the ability to create custom heat maps and use 3rd party reporting tools. Using a cluster should be as easy as using any other network resource. Just like you can connect to a network printer and print jobs, you should be able to connect to a cluster, submit a computationally challenging job, and get the results,” explains Product Unit Manager Windows HPC Server, Ryan Waite.

If you would like to get BizTalk Server Best Practices Analyzer 1.2, a download location is available here.
