A stable solution for our customer's websites or internal applications

What is our primary use case?

We are a system integrator and this is one of the solutions that we assist our customers with. Our customers are primarily government departments, agencies, and ministries. These organizations are not very comfortable with using the cloud, so the majority of deployments are on-premises. This solution is used for the customer's website or internal applications.

Pros and Cons

  • "This is definitely a stable solution."
  • "The areas of this solution that need improvement are monitoring, debugging, and troubleshooting."

What other advice do I have?

This is a solution that I can recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

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.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution integrates well with most Microsoft products."
  • "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."

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.
