I'm working on a solution where we will be setting up 40 virtual web servers on a single server using Windows 2008 w/ Hyper-V.
Unfortunately, we only have 3 free public IP addresses to use, so I need to have a basically a single public IP which would route a request to the appropriate server.
I'm thinking that I would have a web server running on the host that would run at say "
web.company.com", then each virtual server could be a sub-domain, like "
client1.web.company.com". Then, a front-end web server would proxy the request to the virtual web server for
Is that a reasonable way to configure the system? If so, can IIS be used to do that proxying or would another open-source web server work better (apache, lighttpd, etc)?
