We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is the easiest way to publish applications which have been designed by older development tools."
"This is definitely a stable solution."
"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."
"It is very usable and easy to understand. Antivirus and VPN are the main features being used now. It allows my clients to access the network from home, which was very crucial because of the pandemic."
"The most valuable feature is AppFabric's hosting solution, which is what we need for running workflows."
"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."
"The areas of this solution that need improvement are monitoring, debugging, and troubleshooting."
"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."
"Its price and licensing policy can be improved. It could be a little cheaper. Licensing is sometimes confusing. There are so many different options. It is difficult to find out what to buy or what to choose for my necessity."
"Microsoft will stop supporting the product next year, and we can't run unsupported programs in our systems."
"This solution comes included with Windows Server."
"The price of the cloud system is a bit high."
"It is expensive, and its licensing is a bit confusing."
