Cons

There have been some performance issues and maybe it's because of the application data."

"I am using an older version of Windows Server IIS and the general management and navigation to get something done is not as straightforward as I hope it to be. The interface could be improved.""IIS could improve the error logging. There are times we are not able to see the errors. More details would be helpful. Additionally, the configuring of the IIS should be allowed through coding instead of the classic view.""IIS could improve by having some features related to ASR and HTTPS certificate generation.""Having no support for other than a Microsoft environment and programming languages limits the usage of IIS in many cases."
