What is a Web Farm?
Steve Evans: Hi, my name is Steve Evans. This is the "Web Farms for Developers" course by Pluralsight. In this course we're going to discuss what is a web farm? And why would I use a web farm? We're going to discuss what load balancers are, and what some of the features of different types of load balancers are. We're going to discuss how to do Web farm management, and not only how to manage the Web servers, the multiple Web servers we're going to have, but also how to deploy our code in a consistent manner to those Web servers. And then we're going to discuss what you need to consider with session state when you're in a Web farm environment. ( Silence )

Load Balancers
In this module, we're going to look at Load Balancers. First, we'll look at the different types of load balancers available. Then we're going to look at what types of features load balancers have and how those match up with the different types available. Then we're going to demonstrate the Windows Network Load Balancing Service which is-- comes with Windows Server. And then, we're also going to demonstrate Application Request Routing which is an extension to IIS.

Web Farm Management
(Background sounds) Steve Evans: In this module, we're going to talk about farm management. We're going to be first talking about how to manage the web servers, how to get those deployed in a repeatable and consistent manner. And then we're going to talk about how to deploy your code, how to deploy the website, again in a repeatable and predictable manner. ( Background sounds )

Session State
In this module we are going to discuss the effects of being in a web-farm has on session state. First we'll discuss in process session state and then we'll discuss out of progress session state and see the effect it has in a web-farm environment.
