Sitefinity 4.1 offers performance gains up to 35 percent, compatibility with new Microsoft cloud OS and native language support

WALTHAM, MA, APRIL 18, 2011 –Telerik, an end-to-end provider of software application lifecycle and content management solutions, today revealed details of its latest release for Sitefinity, the company’s robust Web Content Management System (WCM). The Sitefinity 4.1 release introduces a number of upgrades and improvements to the sophisticated system, including enhancements delivering performance increases of up to 35 percent. Also being debuted is support for Windows Azure, Microsoft’s cloud services operating system, and native language packs for international Sitefinity users.

“This release delivers significant improvements that benefit all the audiences typically using a WCM. Content editors get a working environment in their native language, developers and site administrators have more server and database support options, and finally the considerable performance boost obviously benefits all,” said Martin Kirov, Sitefinity executive vice president, Telerik. “Our dedication to uncompromising quality and innovation means we cannot and will not settle for offering products that are just ‘good enough’. Telerik will continue to aggressively pursue and deliver those leading-edge solutions that developers need to excel.”

With the release of Sitefinity 4.1, the system is now compatible with Microsoft Azure, Microsoft’s recently released platform that acts as a runtime for off-premises application development, management, and hosting. With this integrated support for Microsoft Azure, developers can leverage Sitefinity’s exceptional features and functionality to tap into new cloud-based markets and revenue streams, as well as reaping the benefits that cloud computing offers, like greater reliability and increased uptime at lower a cost threshold than with conventional IT infrastructures.
