"IIS has a very simple and user-friendly interface, which helps a lot in effective and efficient management."
"The interface, simplicity, and ease of management are all good features that make this user-friendly."
"Tomcat is user-friendly and easy to set up, especially compared to WebLogic or JBoss where some specialty is required. If you are going for Tomcat, you can use their guidelines and can set it up easily."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the general web server features."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is that it supports Java Enterprise."
"The deployment process is very fast."
"The most valuable feature is the free EE server."
"We chose to use Tomcat because it's perfect compared to other containers that we have tested."
"Web apps are very easy to deploy."
"Scalability issues and security concerns need attention from Microsoft."
"Having no support for other than a Microsoft environment and programming languages limits the usage of IIS in many cases."
"The interface is not user-friendly."
"Technical support is limited."
"It would be great if they offered more integration of monitoring tools."
"Tomcat is used mainly for database connections. As of now, we configure that environment for any database configuration. But if any utility can integrate where we can pass the database connection as a string of details, then it should encrypt them and keep them inside. From that security perspective, Tomcat requires improvement. They should integrate this security feature."
"I would personally like it if the admin console would show more information specifically about memory being used."
"The high availability is not as robust as the competition is such as WebLogic and Jboss."
"In the solution, we are using the terminal to enter command line codes for operations and management, this is difficult for me. It would be better if we had some administrator UI tools for this."
