The Microsoft.com Operations Team is pleased to announce the launch of our new Microsoft.com Engineering Operations TechCenter. This site ids designed with the ITPro/Systems Engineer in mind. We get to work on some cutting edge technologies and our goal is to share our experiences, best practices, and findings with the ITPro/Systems Engineering community. Take a look at the key articles that are in this inaugural launch:
Introduction to the Microsoft.com Engineering Operations Team
Introduces the Microsoft.com Engineering Operations team, which is made up of systems engineers who support some of the largest and most heavily visited sites on the Internet, and describes the architectural infrastructure of some of the properties we support, including www.microsoft.com, Microsoft® Update, MSDN® and TechNet.
Migrating a Web Server from IIS 6.0 to IIS 7.0 by Using the Microsoft Web Deploy Tool
Get an inside look at how to install the new Microsoft Web Deploy Utility (MS Deploy) Tool as well as migrating your Web server or Web site from a computer that is running Information Services (IIS) version 6.0 on Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 to a computer that is running Internet Information Services (IIS) version 7.0 on Windows Server 2008.
How Microsoft.com Engineering Operations Delegates Configuration in IIS 7.0
Reduce administration overhead with IIS7.0 delegated configuration. Find out how the Microsoft.com Engineering Operations team uses delegated configuration in Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0. Topics include performance and availability considerations, security, and delegating administrative control to Web sites.
Customizing IIS 7.0 by Installing and Configuring Roles, Role Services, Features, and Modules
Modular architecture in IIS7.0 enables administrators to reduce your web server footprint, by only installing features you need. Get a look under the hood and see how Microsoft.com Engineering Operations team installs role services, features and the associated Internet Information Services (IIS) version 7.0 modules that are required to run www.microsoft.com Web servers.
The Microsoft.com Engineering Operations TechCenter. will have also provide links to all of the existing content that we had produced over the last couple of years.
In the works are content about:
1. How MSCOM Ops Configure Application Pools in IIS7.0
2. How MSCOM Ops Adopts New Technology
Also in the planning stages are information about how we are using Hyper-V, as well as findings on how the new TCP/IP stack effects performance on SQL replication in high latency situations (i.e., replication from West Coast to East Coast).
We are very excited to get this project launched, it is the first TechCenter that is focused on the ITPro/System Engineer.
