Cons
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.This solution needs to be easier for cases where you want to have an IIS cluster.The solution should improve the cluster environment and load balancing.The areas of this solution that need improvement are monitoring, debugging, and troubleshooting.The scalability depends on how you have set it up. If you're running IIS on a single server, it might not be as capable as if you are on many in a cluster or with load balancing and so on.Finding different settings can be difficult if you don't know where to look.
