IIS Outserves Apache on Fortune 1000 Web Sites While ASP.NET Deployments Grow

Microsoft's Upcoming Windows Server 2008 With IIS 7 Should Eclipse IIS 6 Among Fortune 1000 Web Sites by 2011

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/16/07 -- Since 2003, Port80 Software has periodically surveyed the public sites of Fortune 1000 companies to determine their use of Web and application hosting technologies. In a survey released today, the Microsoft Internet Information Services 6.0 Web server (IIS 6) gained 9.5% since August 2006 and passed IIS 5 to lead the survey for the first time, outserving the open source Apache server and all other Web servers among Fortune 1000 sites. Overall, IIS 4, 5, 6, and 7 deployments continue a four year lead in the survey with a combined 55.0% share of all Fortune 1000 corporate sites versus Apache's 24.9% share.

In a related Port80 Software survey, Microsoft ASP.NET and ASP application server environments are currently used on 51.5% of Fortune 1000 sites, an increase of 7.9% since 2005. Other application servers like Java platforms (J2EE, JSP, WebLogic, WebSphere, and Tomcat), PHP, and ColdFusion all combined to account for 24.0% of Fortune 1000 site deployments. Heavier use of ASP.NET among Fortune 1000 sites is to be expected, given the prevalence of Microsoft IIS on the same sites.

Much has changed since 2003, when Apache's dominance was relatively unquestioned in the industry. "While Netcraft's recent surveys demonstrate the rise of Microsoft's Internet Information Services across the Internet at large, Port80 Software continues to see IIS beating Apache among leading U.S. enterprise companies," Joseph Lima, Director of Product Development at Port80 Software. "Having analyzed Fortune 1000 Web sites for years now, we estimate that IIS 6 penetration will continue unabated while IIS 5/Windows 2000 servers are decommissioned, with a few Apache defections along the way. If the trend from previous surveys holds, IIS 7 should be the dominant Web server for Fortune 1000 sites by 2011."

Port80 Software will offer IIS 7-compatible versions of its products by early 2008 to leverage the new extensibility model in IIS 7 on Windows Server 2008, the upcoming new server OS from Microsoft previously codenamed "Longhorn." While known for its Web performance products, Port80 also augments IIS security with its ServerMask(TM) and LinkDeny(TM) tools for less than $200 per server. Port80's upcoming ServerDefender(TM) Web application firewalls will also add crucial protection against damaging Web hacker attacks often reported by security organizations like SANS Institute, OWASP, and more (http://www.port80software.com/security).

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
