ASP.NET and IIS Serve More Fortune 1000 Sites Than any Other Web Server Technologies

First Survey of U.S. Corporate Application Server and Scripting Deployments Reveals Microsoft(R) Ahead of Competing Web Platform

SAN DIEGO, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- A new survey of the 2005 Fortune 1000 Web sites reports that Microsoft's ASP.NET, ASP, and Internet Information Services (IIS) serve the majority of leading U.S. corporate sites.

The Top 1000 Application Servers Survey conducted last month by Port80 Software, a developer of tools for IIS Web servers, was the first to examine application server and scripting engine deployments among the Fortune 1000. Application servers and scripting platforms like Microsoft's ASP.NET and classic ASP, Java platforms (such as BEA's WebLogic, IBM's WebSphere, and Sun's J2EE and JavaServer Pages), Macromedia's ColdFusion, and PHP enable dynamic Web sites, e-commerce, and most Internet-based software applications.

The Top 1000 Application Servers Survey results from May 2005 Web requests to each 2005 Fortune 1000 company's main Web site were:

Microsoft platforms (ASP.NET, ASP): 43.6% Java platforms (J2EE, JSP, WebLogic, WebSphere, Tomcat): 12.2% PHP: 5.2% ColdFusion: 2.7% Perl: 2.3% Python (Zope): 0.1%

In addition to the new survey, Port80 Software updated its Top 1000 Web Servers Survey, which analyzes the Web server software used by Fortune 1000 sites. Web servers work in tandem with application servers and scripting environments to deliver Web content. New results from Port80 Software's updated May 2005 survey of 2005 Fortune 1000 corporate Web server market share were:

Microsoft IIS: 53.7% Apache: 22.7% Other Web servers: 12.8% Netscape Enterprise: 10.8%

Microsoft IIS has led this survey since its inception in 2003 and now claims a 53.7% share of servers hosting the largest public-facing corporate sites. Further inspection of Microsoft's platform mix shows IIS 6.0 usage has grown significantly to 12.8% of 2005 Fortune 1000 Web servers.

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...
