ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, October 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Bitrix, Inc. (http://www.bitrixsoft.com), a trendsetter in business communications, has announced the release of Bitrix Site Manager Version 11.0. Most notable product enhancements are: Cloud storage support; Geo-distributed Web Cluster for smarter web traffic distribution; Quality Monitor tools with extendable tests.

"We made modifications throughout our product to make this version a 'Cloud platform' for web development." - said Sergey Rizhikov, CEO, Bitrix, Inc.

Bitrix Cloud Storage module supports Google Storage, Amazon S3, Windows Azure Storage, and OpenStack, as well as CDN (Content Delivery Network), which accelerates uploading of large files.

The new Geo-distributed Web Cluster module provides insurance against a service outage in a single data center. If one data center goes down, a replicated server in a different location will ensure website availability.

Version 11.0 is equipped with a Project Quality Control tool which offers a set of tests that ensure optimal quality of integration of the design, the program's external environment, security, performance, and hosting settings within the system.

Bitrix Site Manager now provides authentication via an unbreakable method of password encoding using an RSA algorithm with a 1024-bit key. The password is transferred to the server in this encoded form regardless of the browser or environment.

Other important product enhancements

  • Social Search - search results based on content and user reputation evaluation;
  • Admin Dashboard - back-end desktops with drag-and-drop gadgets and quick search;
  • Photo Gallery - additional skins, a new thumbnail slider, and the Live Feed support;
  • Schema.org support - microformats in the e-Store for better search engine indexing;
  • Short links, Auto-saving for web forms, Automatic Time Zone, and more.

Current Bitrix Site Manager owners with active subscription for technical support can upgrade to Version 11.0 at no charge using the SiteUpdate feature in the product. The new version is available for download as a free 30-day trial version (http://www.bitrixsoft.com/download/cms.php), or can be tested online using the instant demo (http://www.bitrixsoft.com/products/cms/demo.php).
