Microsoft rechristening the product formerly known as BizTalk Server 2009 R2 as “BizTalk Server 2010.” “One interesting result of the renaming is that the lifecycle clock resets. For BizTalk 2009 R2, the 5 and 10 year support bands would have started with the release of BizTalk Server 2009 "R1" so you would effectively lose a year. For BizTalk 2010, the support bands start from its release ... some time in 2010,” revealed John Breakwell. Microsoft also is adding a bunch of new capabilities to BizTalk Server 2010 release, including: Enhanced trading partner management will enable customers to manage complex B2B relationships with ease; Enhanced BizTalk Mapper functionality; Secure data transfer across business partners with FTPS adapter; Updated adapters for SAP 7, Oracle eBusiness Suite 12.1, SharePoint 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2; Improved via an updated System Center management pack; Simplified management through single dashboard enables IT Pros to backup and restore BizTalk configuration; Enhanced performance tuning capabilities at Host and Host Instance level; Out of box event filtering and delivery of RFID events.
