A new survey of the 2005 Fortune 1000 Web sites reports that
Microsoft’s ASP.NET, ASP, and Internet Information Services (IIS) serve
the majority of leading U.S. corporate sites.
The Top 1000 Application Servers Survey conducted last month by Port80 Software (www.port80software.com),
a developer of tools for IIS Web servers, was the first to examine
application server and scripting engine deployments among the Fortune
1000. Application servers and scripting platforms like Microsoft’s
ASP.NET and classic ASP, Java platforms (such as BEA’s WebLogic, IBM’s
WebSphere, and Sun’s J2EE and JavaServer Pages), Macromedia’s
ColdFusion, and PHP enable dynamic Web sites, e-commerce, and most
Internet-based software applications.
In addition to the new
survey, Port80 Software updated its Top 1000 Web Servers Survey, which
analyzes the Web server software used by Fortune 1000 sites. Web
servers work in tandem with application servers and scripting
environments to deliver Web content.
Microsoft IIS has led this
survey since its inception in 2003 and now claims a 53.7% share of
servers hosting the largest public-facing corporate sites.
complimentary research also surveys HTTP compression and cache control
technologies used by the Fortune 1000 to accelerate and optimize Web
