Going fast is always fun, but when it comes to your hardware, it could mean saving a lot of money on hardware and stretching your budget to the max. Software developers usually spend a lot of time and energy on making their product run as lean and efficient as possible, but ultimately, every customer uses his systems differently, and so there’s no one-size-fits-all. For this reason, most products allow you to tweak some settings to squeeze a bit more performance out of your system.
A few days ago, the Windows Server team has produced a highly detailed and very comprehensive guide for performance tuning. It offers a whole bag of tricks and tips on choosing hardware, altering settings and adjusting parameters to get the most out of the various parts of your system.
Part of the guide pertains specifically to IIS, and this new version of the guide includes updates pertaining to the latest version of IIS – version 8.5 that’s bundled with Windows Server 2012 R2.
