Windows Server 2008 and Web Hosting

May 15, 2008

By now, you’ve probably heard all about how IIS7 is a major leap forward in terms of functionality and performance.  If you haven’t then check out this Silverlight video.

IIS7 was a major reason for me to be excited about W2008 because I was then working for a major web hosting company here in Ireland.  I knew that IIS7 would allow us to reduce our server numbers, power utilisation, reduce costs and increase revenue. 

The Windows Team blog has reported where one web hosting company, HostMySite.com,  has gone ahead and taken advantage of this.  Their solution is allowing them to use 60% fewer web servers!
