I have been in the IT industry since 1995. I've had my hand in a variety of technologies as a developer, infrastructure specialist, and systems architect. Some of these include (but are not limited to):

  • IIS, Apache
  • SharePoint (2003, 2007, and 2010)
  • SQL Server
  • ColdFusion, Classic ASP, PHP
  • F5 Load Balancers
  • PowerShell
  • Visual Basic
  • ASP.Net (C#)
  • Mainframe technologies (COBOL, DB2, CICS) ...trying to forget these

I could go on...

I do not declare myself to be an authoritative expert on any of these and I don't carry any fancy certifications. I like finding ways to use technology to solve problems. Over the years I have used much from the open community. I am participating on the StackExchange sites as a way to give back to the community and to share many aspects of things I have learned over the years.

comment Is virtualbox good for live server virtualization
Well explained. One thing to note, however, is that Hyper-V is not really a true bare metal hypervisor like the ESX and Xen products. It generally runs on top of Windows (although it is still a hypervisor). The stand-alone Hyper-V server has a much smaller footprint than running on top of a full Windows server, but many parts of Windows are still there. Well stated answer, and I agree, VirtualBox is not intended to run production VMs but is well suited for use in development work on a desktop machine.

comment Can an IIS load balancer proxy many long lived HTTP streaming requests?
From the sound of the question, ARR is being used on the "load balancer" IIS machine. What operating system is being used for the two back end servers? Is it still IIS 7 on Windows 2008 Server (standard or R2)? 32 or 64 bit? etc.
