Web administrators rejoice, IIS7 will make your life easier

Your life as a web admin is about to get easier, assuming you are using Windows as your platform of choice. IIS7 in the newly released Longhorn Beta 3 is chock full of updated and upgraded goodness. A few specific features look like they will save a lot of time and effort for admins: HangZhou Night Net

Shared Configuration: This will let you share a configuration across multiple servers. This is a great tool; set up your system how you like it and then deploy it across all your boxes. No more messing around with the metabase.FastCGI for PHP. Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP are still powering the majority of websites out there, but it's obvious that Microsoft is taking the web server market seriously with built in support for PHP or Ruby on Rails, something that Mac OS X will support with Leopard.Remote administration: You can now administer your web servers remotely
as well as delegating the ability to "site managers" with the upgraded
management tool, as well as accessing more options via the GUI instead
of cryptic command line settings.Extensibility: IIS is now much easier to expand. Developers can hook into and expand IIS functionality with familiar tools.FTP over SSL: Written with the new extensibility tools mentioned above this is something you'd have to use third party software before. Because it's using HTTPS it will be usable behind most firewalls while maintaining a decent level of security.

Microsoft has not announced a pricing model yet for Longhorn, but we believe that they'll have something similar to Windows Server 2003 Web Edition to try and keep Linux at bay. If the new features in IIS7 work reliably and securely, they may be able to accomplish that goal.
