Use only what you need
IIS 8 and 7 are built with a completely modular architecture, on top of rich extensibility APIs. This enables you to easily add, remove and even replace built-in IIS components with custom modules, specifically suited for customer needs. Use only what you need. Customize and add new features, such as Intelligent Media Streaming and URL Rewriter through free IIS Extensions.
Speed up your Web site through built-in dynamic caching and enhanced compression. IIS 8 and IIS 7 provide the fastest performance for static and dynamic Web content through powerful HTTP compression and deeper integration with request serving from the Windows kernel for SSL Web sites. Implement a scalable Web infrastructure with built-in HTTP-based load balancing and intelligent request handling and routing.
IIS 8 and IIS 7 maximize Web server security by default with minimal Web server footprint and automatic application isolation. IIS 8.0 offers performance sandboxing through CPU throttling, which reduces the probability of a runaway application. In addition, both IIS 8 and IIS 7 offer greater application isolation by giving worker processes a completely unique identity and sandboxed configuration by default, further reducing security risks.
