Information Technology (IT) has brought significant improvement in business operations and in the entire human life as whole. IT has brought the world closer; we can share information quickly and efficiently. IT has played an important role in Globalization. We @ Soigne use latest technologies to develop websites, application and to provide different services to our clients. These technologies are divided into following categories:

  • Content Management System (CMS)
  • E-commerce
  • .NET Applications
  • PHP
  • Databases
  • Servers

PHP stands for Hypertext Preprocessor. Although PHP started gaining popularity with Web developers around 1998, it was created by RasmusLerdorf way back in 1994. It started as a set of simple tools coded in ā€˜Cā€™ language to replace the Perl scripts. In 1997, two more developers, ZeevSuraski and Andy Gutmans, rewrote most of the PHP along with Rasmus and released it to public.

PHP is a fast, server-side, cross-platform scripting language. PHP engine can integrate with all common Web servers, including Apache, Internet Information Server (IIS), Zeus, and lighttpd.

PHP is free software released under the PHP License. PHP includes free and open source libraries with modules built-in for accessing FTP servers, database servers and others.


Server is a computer on a network that manages network resources. There are many different types of services which server offer. There are mainly two types of server:

Windows Server

It a series server Operating System (OS) developed by Microsoft Corporation. It is a very powerful server OS which can handle corporate networking, internet/intranet, databases etc. Few of the services offered by the Windows Server are as follows:

  • Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS): It enable users to authenticate to the domain for access to domain resources
  • Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS): is an information protection technology to help safeguard digital information from unauthorized use. Owner can define who can open, modify, print, forward, or take further actions with the information.
  • Virtualization Server (Hyper-V): Used to create and manage virtual server computing environment.
  • Internet Information Services (IIS): It provides the technology to host web-aware applications for browser-based access.
  • Distributed File System (DFS) Server: Allows an organization to take control of distributed files into a common unified namespace.
Linux Server

Linux is a UNIX-like computer operating system (OS) that was originally developed as a free OS for Intel x86-based PCs. Linux server is designed to handle the more demanding needs of business applications such as network and system administration, database management and web services. Linux servers are very stable, secure and flexible. Leading Linux servers are CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu Server, SUSE, Slackware and Gentoo. Since February 2010, Linux distributions represented six of the top ten, FreeBSD two of ten, and Microsoft one of ten. Few of the features of Linux are:

  • Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): It provides a single directory source for system information look-up and authentication.
  • Control Groups: Control groups let you assign specific hardware resources to applications, processes and threads.
  • Firewall Protections: Protects your network from internal and external attacks with a stateful firewall.
  • IPv6 Support
  • Data Center Bridging (DCB): DCB allows you to build an Ethernet-based converged networking for both storage and data networking for lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and simpler management.
