Yesterday was a big day in the world of Dynamics CRM 2011. We have released all the pieces necessary if you want to deploy a Dynamics CRM 2011 instance either onsite or even in a a partner hosted model. Once again with a single code model we can support multiple types of deployments and  not force you the customer into one type of deployment. The power of choice is a wonderful thing and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 delivers this and more thanks to the hard work of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 product team.

If your wondering at this point just how fast Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 is and how many users it can support well the numbers have gone up quite a bit. Our testing has shown we can support 150,000 concurrent users with sub second response times. Clearly our product group felt the need for speed. I still remember being stunned when I was told we would support 24,000 concurrent users on Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 and yet now we have gone way beyond this.

Since the original launch of Microsoft Dynamics CRM way back in January 2003 the product group has consistently delivered on the promise of an easy to use but powerful CRM system that can be used at many organizations large and small and can be expanded and extended in many different directions. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 continues that fine tradition.

Many hours of feedback has gone into the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 product by our partner community and MVP’s. Dynamics CRM 2011 continues to be successful not only because of the underlying technology but because of the commitment of the partner community behind it and the willingness of the product team to engage with partners at all levels. To the Microsoft Dynamics CRM partner community, thank you for your continued partnership around this great product.
