We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is easy to use, easy to maintain and isn't too technical."
"The graphical user interface makes it easy for users to configure the sites."
"The solution integrates well with most Microsoft products."
"The solution is very easy to use and offers a quick deployment."
"The solution is easy to use and connects with Microsoft."
"What I like the most is that it is easy to use."
"Microsoft's technical support has always been very good."
"The solution is very stable. The solution is very simple and easy to use."
"I think installation only took a couple of minutes — no more than 10 minutes."
"The solution should improve the cluster environment and load balancing."
"This solution needs to be easier for cases where you want to have an IIS cluster."
"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."
"We've never had any issues with the solution, but it's still nice to have overall improvements on it. It could be easier and faster to use, for example."
"The documentation is not very detailed. They need to improve it and add to it. They should ensure there are lots of visuals to help users better understand the solution."
"In the next release, I would like to see better integration between the cloud environment and the on-premises environment."
"The documentation isn't very good and the options are very complex."
"The level of technical support the solution offers could be improved."
"The scaling should be built into the software rather than configured from an outside source."
