  • Web Farm Framework 2.0 - Release to Web

    Jan 20, 2011 07:34 PM|ruslany|LINK

    Today IIS team has released to web the Web Farm Framework 2.0. This is the final, production ready version that has several new features and improvements listed below:

    • Workflow Builder is used to define and schedule custom tasks that can be run on all servers in the farm. The tasks can be scheduled to run periodically or can be started manually by an administrator. An example of such task could be a msdeploy command to partially sync web site content.
    • Windows Credential Store support allows to store the administrator credentials used for server provisioning in a secure Windows Credential Store. This enables an added layer of security when dealing with credentials in Web Farm Framework.
    • Third party load balancers support via Web Farm Framework extensibility. It is possible to configure Web Farm Framework to integrate with hardware load balancers instead of relying on IIS Application Request Routing module.
    • Improved support for advanced MSDeploy operations. Options of MSDeploy can be used with Web Farm Framework for advanced deployment scenarios.
    • Improved support for syncing large amount of files. Several issues related to syncing large amount of files across web farm nodes have been fixed.

    In addition to that many bugs reported by beta users were fixed in this release.
