Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft IIS

IIS is being used as a centralized web farm management tool for my company. We deploy and manage web sites and applications across large farms of web servers from a centralized location. Microsoft IIS makes it easy to centrally deploy and manage the configuration and content across a bunch of different web servers.
  • Delegated remote management.
  • Admin tool center is great.
  • Scalable web infrastructure when needed.
  • The installation process had bugs.
  • The pricing structure was confusing.
  • The diagnostic tools could have a better UX.

  • Diagnostic tools.
  • It has reduced our cost a bit in terms of head count
  • The scalability has been nice to keep up with user demand
  • The access protection has been a nice benefit
In terms of the configuration on a shared volume perspective, I think the Apache HTTP Server does a better job here. The Apache angle on this problem is more efficient from a man power perspective and ends up costing a little less in the long run over time. IIS tends to scale better at a certain point though.

Depending on your needs a company, Microsoft IIS may or may not be a great solution. In the case of my company, we do not have a ton of security protocols to go through like some other companies. Take for example, a government agency or maybe health care, which has numerous data privacy restrictions that need to be considered.
