Last week, the IIS team released bit-rate throttling module to the web.
As the self-proclaimed daddy of the project (I designed and wrote the initial prototype in early 2007), I am very thrittled to see it out. The new IIS media team folks have done a great job getting it production ready and rounding out the feature-set, which you can review in its full glory in Vishal's post.
Although the feature is a bit different from how I originally envisioned it, it kicks ass at doing what it is supposed to do - saving your bandwidth costs. Read more about at http://mvolo.com/blogs/serverside/archive/2008/03/16/IIS-7.0-Bit_2D00_rate-throttling-module.aspx.
In the past, I've blogged a number of times about using Visual Studio to develop and debug IIS 7.0 applications.
I am happy to say that Visual Studio 2008 has added a number of improvements to work better with IIS 7.0, making it a lot easier to use it to develop, deploy, and debug those applications both locally and on remote IIS 7.0 servers.
To help you get started with using Visual Studio 2008 to work with IIS 7.0 applications, I put together a new iis.net article precisely on the subject. Learn more about it at http://mvolo.com/blogs/serverside/archive/2008/03/12/Using-Visual-Studio-2008-with-IIS-7.0.aspx.
