Now Offers Entity Framework 6 On its Windows Hosting, a New York-based web hosting provider specializing in Windows and ASP.NET hosting, has announced the availability of new hosting plans that are optimized for the latest update of Microsoft’s Entity Framework technology, Entity Framework version 6.

With the latest release of the Entity Framework, a component of the .NET framework, most of the need for data-access code that developers usually have to write is eliminated. The open source object-relational mapper is specifically designed to enable ASP.NET developers to work with relational data using domain-specific objects.

Version 6  would benefit from support for the Async language, as well as multi-tenant migrations. The Entity Framework would also allow programmers to create a model by writing code or using boxes and lines in the Entity Framework (EF) Designer, approaches that can be used to target an existing database or create a new database.

There are new, or at least radically expanded services from Entity Framework 6, according to the web hosting provider, such as:

  • Connection Resiliency
  • Async Query and Save
  • Code-Based Configuration
  • Dependency Resolution
  • Interception/SQL logging
  • Testability improvements
  • EF Designer in this category
  • Level-setting features

The web hosting services delivered by include shared hosting, Windows cloud hosting, reseller hosting, and Sharepoint hosting, with specialty in ASP.NET hosting, SQL Server, and architecting highly scalable solutions.
