IIS Room for Improvement
Senior Administrator - Windows at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
There are a lot of security issues with IIS, and this has become more of a concern, especially recently. That security problem is the biggest disadvantage.
Scalability is also a problem. Microsoft needs to improve on that aspect of the product. There are many limitations on IIS that seem like they should not be hard to remedy.
On the other hand, Microsoft is doing more to concentrate on Azure for the cloud solution, so it may be their intent that Azure is ultimately the better solution.View full review »
IIS needs immediate improvements, especially in the area of security management.
Having no support for other than a Microsoft environment and programming languages limits the usage of IIS in many cases.
The capability to host and deploy open-source applications would definitely add more value to it. There should be plugins to enable it to support open-source programming languages.
It also limits us in the choice of operating systems.
IIS should be enhanced in terms of its capabilities for monitoring and debugging.
