Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 for on-premises and partner-hosted deployments is now avialable for download. This release complements the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, which delivers CRM 2011 as an on-demand service from Microsoft's datacenters and was launched into 40 markets and 41 languages in January. With a single multitenant code base across cloud and on-premises deployment models, CRM 2011 delivers the Power of Productivity to sales, service and marketing organizations worldwide.

In addition, Microsoft announced the new release scaled to 150,000 concurrent users in a single instance while delivering sub-second response times, once again raising the bar for performance and scalability in the CRM industry. The new benchmark results will be detailed in a Dynamics CRM performance and scalability white paper that'll be delivered in the coming weeks.
