Affordable IT: Web Servers

What's Available

There are two basic elements to a HA (high-availability) Web presence: multiple Web servers and the hardware/software to provide redundancy. Several free Web server packages are available, as well as low-cost alternatives that come with some technical support. If you and your remote site or department lack intimate familiarity with Web servers, the technical support option is a must.

Microsoft's IIS (Internet Information Services) is nominally free--if you buy a Windows operating system, you get IIS, too. Apache, available for free as a download, is included in every major distribution of Linux.
