I have been in the IT industry since 1995. I've had my hand in a variety of technologies as a developer, infrastructure specialist, and systems architect. Some of these include (but are not limited to):

  • IIS, Apache
  • SharePoint (2003, 2007, and 2010)
  • SQL Server
  • ColdFusion, Classic ASP, PHP
  • F5 Load Balancers
  • PowerShell
  • Visual Basic
  • ASP.Net (C#)
  • Mainframe technologies (COBOL, DB2, CICS) ...trying to forget these

I could go on...

I do not declare myself to be an authoritative expert on any of these and I don't carry any fancy certifications. I like finding ways to use technology to solve problems. Over the years I have used much from the open community. I am participating on the StackExchange sites as a way to give back to the community and to share many aspects of things I have learned over the years.

comment Server-infrastructure recommendations
Some cloud solutions do indeed have a few growing pains. Their usefulness largely depends on requirements. Virtualization can most certainly be used for prod environments. Web servers, application servers, and file servers are often good candidates for virtualization. Database servers have to be closely evaluated due to disk I/O, but with the correct configuration in the right environment can be used for production as well. Managed dedicated solutions can be expensive and are also more expensive to scale than a cloud solution, but certainly have their place depending on requirements.

comment Why don't large popular sites such as SO use keyword and description meta headers?
Agree with this answer, meta keywords and description had been getting abused a lot so the search engines started putting much less weight on them. Using meta keywords tags can also give competitors an idea of the kinds of keywords you are targeting for SEO ranking and may influence their SEO strategies.

There is a difference between 'data' (raw materials) and 'information' (finished goods). Log files provide you with data. Log file analytics software can help filter and process that data into useful information that can be used for decision making.

comment How to avoid DotNetNuke with another ASP.NET application conflicts
In the MSDN article: "Configuration settings for virtual directories are independent of physical directory structure, and virtual directories must be organized carefully to avoid configuration problems." Hope that helps too.

comment How to avoid DotNetNuke with another ASP.NET application conflicts
The physical folder on the file system does not really matter since you can point the document root of a website or virtual directory to any file system location. The issue you are having is that the web.config of the B2B application is inheriting the settings of the root website (in this case DNN). You either need to break the inheritance or install the two applications in different "branches" of the website. If you want DNN to be the default site and it is installed to a different folder, you will need to 301 redirect MyCompanyDomain.com to something like MyCompanyDomain.com/DNN.
