The Windows 2008 Road Show is coming to a city near you!

Microsoft is hosting a World Wide Windows Server 2008 Road Show.  This is a unique opportunity to learn about and gets hands-on experience with our latest Web server technology-Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and Internet Information Services 7.  Myself and my teammates will be at these road shows and hope you can come out and join us!

IIS 7 is our most ambitious Web server to date and has many features that directly benefit the hosting community. IIS 7 will reduce total cost of ownership, improve manageability, and create new business opportunities.

Here are a few examples of what you can do with IIS 7:


Scale your infrastructure

  • Easily sandbox thousands of Web sites on a single server
  • "Xcopy" deployment of sites and servers with the new, file-based configuration system

Reduce costs

  • Remote Web server administration tool allows site owners and developers to control delegated Web site features
  • Runtime Status and Control API provides rapid access to detailed diagnostic information.

Go to market faster

  • Extensible, modular architecture allows you to quickly bring new features to market
  • Deeply integrate IIS into your environment using public configuration and control APIs
  • World-class performance and reliability hosting of ASP, ASP.NET, and PHP applications
  • New, extensible FTP Server providing secure connections, improved site isolation and more
  • Use the IIS FastCGI component, now part of IIS7 in Windows Server 2008 to run and optimize the performance of PHP.
