Executive Summary

PoundHost Internet is a leading Web hosting service provider in the United Kingdom that offers dedicated and co-location servers. Customers running both Microsoft ASP.NET and PHP applications had to lease a Windows-based server for ASP.NET and a Linux-based server for PHP. When PoundHost upgraded to Windows Server 2008 R2 to take advantage of its virtualization technology, the company also realized benefits from improvements in Internet Information Services 7.5. With enhanced PHP support in IIS 7.5, PoundHost customers can run PHP-based Web applications on Windows-based servers, yielding greater flexibility and lower costs. The management improvements in IIS 7.5 save time in deploying and managing servers, and the modular architecture helps customers better protect their Web servers. With these new features, PoundHost has gained a competitive edge.
