You're lucky. When I worked for the federal government(USDA/USFS), there was no way I was going to get access to non-windows servers for deploying my projects. When we brought up the idea of using AWS, they told is that it was impossible as they had no way to handle reoccurring monthly billing. (obviously, this is a lazy excuse). The only node project I managed to get deployed ran behind Apache on Windows Server 2003... and it performed as horribly as one might expect an event-loop to perform behind a threaded proxy.

Ummmm.... Lots of government services run on AWS.


Yeah - now. Not back when win2k3 was in use.

Sadly, Win2k3 was in use in 2012/2013 when this occurred.

Do they even share the same decade?
