We built a SHIB SSO and OAUTH SSO middleware in web2py that handles 1000+ concurrent users with very good results in IIS and ISAPI running a WSGI wrapper ala the cookbook instructions. I hear IIS and FastCGI and wonder if this is a better deployment option? Are you aware of any advantages of

it's from some time ago but should work without issues. I think some improvements have been made regarding wfastcgi availability as a proper package, but in any case, I'm here to help (and maybe we can revisit the segment on the book with your experience). : should be "verbatim" but

I think the thread you referenced was one discussing deployment on Ubuntu where yes, nginx/uwsgi is preferred. But, the Windows environment is different (in my opinion) since the Windows nginx is still considered 'beta'. I wouldn't feel that comfortable using it. (that said, I do use many

I haven't seen anything about Apache no longer supported. Did I miss something? To my knowledge, nginx is not considered 'production ready' on Windows. See the first paragraph here: http://nginx.org/en/docs/windows.html I think Apache is the way to go.
