IIS (Internet Information Services) Server
Microsoft’s IIS (Internet Information Services) is a secure, highly extensible web server framework designed for Windows Server. IIS offers power and flexibility to host anything from simple HTML web pages to CPU-intensive media streaming. Its robust feature set includes Centralized Web Farm Management, which lets admins centrally deploy and manage websites and applications across large server farms; command-line, UI, and API-based administrative tools for configuration and management; a scalable web infrastructure with HTTP-based load balancing, intelligent request routing, and high-speed dynamic caching and compression; and support for deploying ASP.NET and PHP applications on the same server. In addition, IIS comes with enterprise-level security components that enable users to securely publish web content via standards-based protocols and provides protection from unauthorized access.
