Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with IIS.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The level of technical support the solution offers could be improved.
I haven't yet come across anything that needs to improve. Perhaps the installation process can be simplified.
The price could be reduced. In the next release, I would like to see better integration between the cloud environment and the on-premises environment.
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.
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.
This solution needs to be easier for cases where you want to have an IIS cluster. If you have several IIS solutions running, it is not clear on how to make them communicate to each other. Normally, IIS Web Server run independently on each server. To have "IIS cluster", currently you need to have a network load balancer (NLB) appliance running in front of them. We use NLB to distribute the load and have high-availability of IIS Web Server.
The solution's security needs improvement. The solution should improve the cluster environment and load balancing.
The areas of this solution that need improvement are monitoring, debugging, and troubleshooting. Having the monitoring as standard on the user interface would be nice. There needs to be an easy way to escalate technical support issues beyond level one, quickly.
Different parameters in this product can be a bit difficult. As soon as you introduce something new, and especially in the Microsoft environment, you always need to do new training sessions to understand what are new functionalities are. Finding the correct options are not more intuitive, and it should be.
