Optimizing Drupal on Windows

IIS 7.5 is a perfect environment to deploy highly scalable and performant PHP applications.

During this hour you will learn how to deploy a Drupal web site on Windows Server 2008 R2, starting from the basic installation up to the creation of highly scalable web farm with load balancing features.
We will explore the IIS 7.5 platform, including URL Rewrite, WinCache for PHP which provides opcode and user data cache features, Application Request Routing, WebFarm Framework which provides reverse proxy features and AppFabric Cache for distributed cache support.

This session is highly recommended and specifically tailored to LAMP professionals approaching the Microsoft Windows and IIS platform.
