About the Technology

When your website slows to a crawl, Exchange stops sending internet mail, or SharePoint goes down, it doesn't matter if your business card says "IIS Administrator." You have to get things working again. Fast. IIS is the fundamental communication gateway for many Microsoft servers as well as the primary technology for publishing web sites. Knowing how to manage IIS effectively can mean the difference between a successful business solution and a vacant parking lot.
