Are there any graphs or analytics about the performance comparison of switching from IIS6 to IIS7? I would like to convince my client to switch to Server 2008 IIS7.

There is some info in this thread at and some more info in this stackoverflow thread.

Additionally ezinearticles covers some of the benefits as well.

I wish there was a better article. The stackoverflow thread is just their observation. It would be nice if someone actually gave real stats. – Mike Flynn Jan 10 '12 at 17:39
I couldn't find any better sadly, there are some articles that compares IIS (as a general) against Apache and Nginx etc. but those don't seem to distinguish between IIS 6, 7 and 7.5 – Thor Erik Jan 11 '12 at 13:48
