The Microsoft Transaction Server is a program that runs on the internet or other network servers with a Windows NT system or higher and manages transaction request on behalf of a client user to manage databases and applications. It handles security connection to other servers and maintains transaction integrity. It is also known as middleware or multi-tier programming. It was built to fit with the overall object-oriented programming strategy. You can drag-and-drop interface to create a transaction server for a single user or allow the server to manage multiple users.

The MTS or Microsoft Transaction Server is a component-based processing system created by Microsoft that is used to deploy, build, and manage robust internet and intranet server applications. It also allows users to manage MTS server applications with rich graphical tool. It was called “Viper” during its development.

It is a program that runs on an internet or other network server that has a Windows NT system and manages program and database transaction requests on behalf of a client computer user. It provided services to COM or Component Object Model software components so that creating large distributed applications would be easy.

The chief services provided by MTS were automated transaction management, role-based security, and instance management or just-in-time activation. The Microsoft Transaction Server was first offered in the Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack then it was improved in Windows 2000 and better integrated with the operating system and COM which was later renamed to COM+.

COM+ is still provided with Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 as part of the .NET framework providing a wrapper in the enterprise service namespace.
