IIS - 32bit vs 64bit and load balancing
Posted on 2011-03-07
Looking for opinions on 32bit vs 64bit IIS. Our main internal application is .net/sql with 32bit iis front end, about 1000 users. This is for internal employees.
Do most people with larger IIS implementations then us stay with 32 bit iis and just implement software or hardware load balancers? Or do they migrate to 64 bit IIS then do the web farms or load balancers?
I'm leaning more towards staying 32bit and a hardware load balancer like F5's because of less headache with tool compatibility etc, not to mention the QA involved with going to 64bit. I'd prefer the hardware load balancing just because it seems to have more control and options but I might be wrong on that.
Just want to make to sure we are moving in the right direction, and get some opinions from people that might have already gone through this.
Thanks a lot
