Try to assign 2 IPs to this machine and load balance it from there...

Two virtual machines would definitely work but I guess the overhead would be worthless in my opinion.

Well, you see, two application pools for the same site? Or two sites having the same code put in two physical folders, each site responding to different IPs each of which registered in the load balancer...

comment Multiple instances of a web site on a single server - upgrade one at a time
Thanks! One side of my uncertainty is that I would have only one physical machine and I would have to host two "instances" (don't exactly know the best term for this) of the same site in the same IIS. Is this feasible?

However if for any reason I would need to use sessions I would prefer SessionState server or AppFabric Cache ('Velocity') :)

I do not intend to make any use of sessions at all. The authentication token (forms authentication) is no problem for this scenario.

comment file-system incremental backup - ideally with no downtime for the web site
no, I don't need to capture the changes but I fear that changes could be captured partially (i.e. some files renamed/deleted etc.) and because it would be partially it would make it inconsistent.

comment Will two or more instances of SQL Server Express help on the same machine?
yeah, I bet I sound cheap and all that but at start I would experiment this way.. Thanks for the info.

comment file-system incremental backup - ideally with no downtime for the web site
Yeah, you're right.. I'm looking into incorporating the media content in the DB anyways and streaming it from there so the backup strategy would be simpler :)

comment Understand PowerShell version
So... having version 2.0.-1.-1 means I have the RTM? The reason for all the fuss is that some software (SharePoint 2010 beta for example) requires PowerShell 2.0 RTM
