IIS Review

Easy to use, integrates will with Microsoft well, and offers a simple initial setup

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for application infrastructure.

What is most valuable?

The solution is easy to use.

The solution integrates well with most Microsoft products.

What needs improvement?

The solution doesn't integrate well with all Microsoft products. There are a few that actually don't integrate well with IIS.

If Microsoft IIS could work well with AppOptics or things like PHP, Python, and other custom languages that run on the webserver, it would be ideal. I think there are cases where people need to use Apache instead of IIS when IIS doesn't work well with other web languages.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a good solution, but we don't use it on a large scale, so I'm not sure how well it scales. Currently, we have 250 users on it. Most are end-users, but we do have five admins on the solution as well.

How are customer service and technical support?

We've never reached out to technical support. Mostly if we have issues, we look to community support for answers.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We also use Apache Web Server side by side with IIS.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We handled the implementation ourselves.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

I'd recommend IIS for almost everything. I would suggest using use case scenarios.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
