Designed for the ISP environment, the Extreme Internet Server supports both virtual and dedicated hosting with software load balancing. The company claims ISPs that use the Extreme Internet Server can increase their revenue and attract new customers by offering flexible deployment options as customers' demands for dynamic content increases. The Extreme Internet Server is supposed to offload resource-intensive CGI script processing onto specialized application servers, which allows a Web server to be tuned for maximum static-content throughput and improves overall site performance.
