What is IIS & why do you need it for your business?
Even the most technologically savvy individuals may not have heard about IIS, may have heard of it only in passing, or may not know exactly how it works. However, it can help your business become faster and more effective — especially if you operate in a fully Windows environment.
IIS is an extensible Web server that operates under the Windows NT group of technologies. In addition to providing robust authentication in the most recent versions, it is also extensible — meaning that customized software can be developed so it operates according to your needs.
Internet Information Services is generally used in partnership with another Microsoft technology, Active Server Pages. Although Active Server Pages has not been updated since 2000, it is still a terrific tool for modifying IIS.
All About Internet Information Services (IIS) & Microsoft
IIS extensions, modifications, and modules can be used to enhance the performance of your Windows NT server. Since there are many large enterprises all over the world that continue to use Windows NT, it is always a good idea to have IIS and ASP in your toolkit.
Some of the most popular current extensions under IIS include:
- FTP Publishing Service for fast publishing of website updates using tough encryption.
- Administration Pack services for faster management of ASP.NET, FastCGI, and more.
- Database Manager tool for rapid management of both local and remote databases.
- Application Request Routing for efficient and granular routing of HTTP requests.
- Media Services module for the management and routing of rich multimedia content.

If your servers are operating under Windows NT, you need to have complete mastery of IIS in order to get the most value from your IT investment. That includes custom software extensions that help propel your stakeholders toward their goals.
