DotNetNuke has announced the release of a new enterprise-focused version of its flagship product, the DotNetNuke Enterprise Edition.
Known primarily for its Web Content Management System (CMS) platforms for Microsoft .NET, the company's new Enterprise Edition includes a new DotNetNuke Content Staging feature that enables users to edit and approve content on a staging server prior to pushing the site to production.
Content Staging allows users to create a separate staging server where all intended production Website changes can be implemented and tested before being published to the production server. Ideal for organizations with many content contributors and tight restrictions on Website content publishing and review, the highly advanced system compares the staging server configuration to the production server to identify missing components and provides a detailed view of all planned changes.
In addition, the DotNetNuke Web CMS includes a new Content Localization feature that enables easy management of multilanguage Websites. The Content Localization feature is included in all editions of the platform, including the Enterprise, Professional and Community Editions. The Content Localization capability helps users manage translated versions of all or some of their Web pages. Ideal for multilanguage Websites, the feature includes management and configuration-mapping tools to keep translated pages synchronized across a Website.
"The new DotNetNuke Enterprise Edition includes Content Staging, which allows organizations to edit and approve Website changes on a staging server prior to publishing to production," said Navin Nagiah, CEO of DotNetNuke. "Content Staging meets the requirements of our midsized and large customers who have formalized rules, guidelines and policies around publishing content. We also added a new Content Localization feature to the DotNetNuke core. The availability of Content Localization in our Community Edition demonstrates our continued commitment to the open-core model and to the community at large. Content Localization will benefit our users who build, deploy and maintain multilanguage Websites."
Other features include an audit tool that creates a record of all publishing events; a "white list" where users can define which modules should push both their settings and content during publishing and which should push only the module settings; and a simple, secure publishing function that allows users to easily push their site from staging to production.
With the introduction of the Enterprise Edition, DotNetNuke will no longer offer the Elite Edition of its solution, which will now comprise the Professional Edition plus Elite Support. The new Elite Support option-available for the Professional and Enterprise Editions-features extended support hours, faster guaranteed support, priority management of support tickets, installation upgrade assistance, and source code access to the proprietary Professional or Enterprise Edition modules.
DotNetNuke officials claim its DotNetNuke offering is the fastest-growing open-source Web CMS ever with nearly 900 subscription customers, 33,000 Snowcovered.com marketplace customers and 400 percent year-over-year growth.
