Rated 5 out of 5 by from A stable, somewhat scalable solution that needs lots of training when elements are upgradedWhat is our primary use case?We primarily use the solution for a publishing website.What is most valuable?The solution is the easiest way to publish applications which have been designed by older development tools.What needs improvement?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.For how long have I used the solution?I've been using the solution pretty much since it was first released.What do I think about the stability of the solution?The solution is very stable.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?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.How are customer service and technical support?We don't a contact for technical support, so I mostly have to cross my fingers and hope that nothing goes wrong.How was the initial setup?I wasn't around for the initial setup, but I can say that we started fairly simple, and it's grown more and more complex as time has gone on.What other advice do I have?We use the on-premises deployment model.The solution is stable, it is working, and you can do a lot with this, but it is not my favorite product. I would prefer to use something that was open-source instead. I would rate it seven out of ten.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built into Windows and has a good interfaceWhat is our primary use case?We use this program as application server.What is most valuable?What I like most about this program, is the fact that it's built into Windows, and then I also like the interface and the support.What needs improvement?I haven't yet come across anything that needs to improve. Perhaps the installation process can be simplified.For how long have I used the solution?I have been using IIS for ten, twelve years now.What do I think about the stability of the solution?The stability is okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ?It needs a more compact configuration, but the clustering feature is valuable.Valuable Features* Clustering* Application isolationRoom for ImprovementIt needs a more compact configuration.Use of SolutionI've used it for one year.Deployment IssuesNo issues encountered.Stability IssuesIt depends on the load of the server, but we have not had an issue.Scalability IssuesNo issues encountered.Customer Service and Technical SupportCustomer Service: I've not used customer service.Technical Support: I've not used technical support.Previous SolutionsWe switched because of the nature of the application and technology.Initial SetupI always design my systems simple and keep them simple as possible.Implementation TeamWe implemented it with in-house team. We like to keep the knowledge in-house.ROIIt was crucial and it definitely paid off.Pricing, Setup Cost and LicensingKeep the systems simple. Try to work with open-source solutions and pay for technical support and subscription to support the projects.Other Solutions ConsideredYes, I always and regularly evaluate. In case of Java we evaluated all applications servers which support JEE full profile.Other AdviceI was using Apache Tomcat, JBoss AS (RedHat), WebMethods (Software AG) and IIS (Microsoft). All of them have they specialities, but depending on the goals and purpose it’s quiet easy to make a choice. Products based on Microsoft .NET do not give companies lot of options; either with Server Operating System shipped IIS, or the developer version called IIS Express. Applications written in Java, n opposite, can be accommodated on several fully profiled or non-fully-profiled application or web servers.Only have one application per server if possible. Do not over complicate it, and keep the variance in the configuration simple as possible.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For us it's a lightweight web host that is easy to configure for simple webpagesHow has it helped my organization?It allowed us to set up and use a Windows Server we had in place already to host our internal web page.What is most valuable?It is a lightweight web host that is easy to configure for simple webpages.What needs improvement?Finding different settings can be difficult if you don't know where to look.For how long have I used the solution?More than five years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?Stability seems good.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?We have not needed to scale out with it, as we use it for very lightweight things.How is customer service and technical support?I have not needed to contact technical support.Which solutions did we use previously?I have tried other tools (such as Apache), and found that IIS is more stable and easier on the memory for low resource systems.How was the initial setup?Initial setup is straightforward for a basic setup (e.g. one host hosting HTTP traffic), but can get more complicated the more features you want to add (e.g. Windows Authentication, HTTPs, web farm, etc.).What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?It is licensed with your Windows installation which makes it relatively cheap if you already have a Windows Server sitting around.Which other solutions did I evaluate?We also evaluated Apache, but found that IIS was easier to set up for what we wanted.What other advice do I have?Give it a shot. The features are included for free with Windows, so test it out. If you are unhappy, it is easy to disable and switch to a different solution.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use GUI, but support for clustering needs to be included in this solutionWhat is our primary use case?We have a GIS solution from ESRI, ArcGIS Web Adaptor, and it is installed on top of IIS. It's part of ArcGIS Enterprise solution.What is most valuable?The graphical user interface makes it easy for users to configure the sites.What needs improvement?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.For how long have I used the solution?I have been using this solution for more than twenty years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?This solution is stable. However, because of the way IIS interacts with the application pool, it is possible that another application running in different application pool, can have an impact to other application pool. Theoretically, each application pool will have independent process and should not conflicting between each other.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?This is something that we are looking into because we want to have IIS Web Server that can communicate between each other. So far, we cannot find this options inside it, anywhere on the menu.In our office, we only have few people who use this solution and we don't have a plans to increase its usage. It is for internal publishing only.But for our client, we implement this solution in production environment and so far, no critical issue happened to run IIS Web Server on it.How are customer service and technical support?We have not been in contact with technical support. So far, we have been able to handle all issues.How was the initial setup?The initial setup of this solution is simple. Even if you aren't familiar with it, it is not complex. If you are installing it inside Windows Server, it will take less than half an hour to deploy. In most cases, it can be done in fifteen minutes.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?This solution comes included with Windows Server.What other advice do I have?My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is to go ahead with it. This is a mature product that is suitable for production environment. It competes with the Linux-based web server, which has more features. However, Microsoft is becoming more friendly with the open-source community, so hopefully they will implement more advanced features inside IIS.It seems to me that Microsoft has been evolving the product with one of the main goals to be ease of use. However, I think that they need to focus on handling the biggest load.I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
