Description

Windows Server 2008 R2 Server Core introduces support for subsets of the 2.0/3.0/3.5 .NET Framework in addition to a number of other new optional features and roles.   These additions extend the role of Server Core system deployments to not only enterprise network service hosting but also to application hosting.   The Framework additions make it possible to host The Web Platform including ASP.NET web applications.   Windows PowerShell is available along with the integrated IIS Provider.   Application Developers should ensure their new and existing Enterprise Solutions integrate well with the Server Core deployment environment.

FastCGI is a language-independent, scalable, open extension to CGI that provides high performance. The FastCGI extension is available in IIS 7.5 and enables application frameworks such as PHP to achieve improved performance and stability on Internet Information Services.
 
This demo illustrates FastCGI configuration on a Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Core deployment target.
