Evolven support for Microsoft IIS can discover granular configuration changes with focus on criticality and impact, making possible less downtime, increased stability.
  • (1888PressRelease) November 29, 2010 - Evolven Software Inc., the pioneer of Granular Configuration Automation solutions, today announced their support for Microsoft IIS. Evolven will enable customers to achieve greater visibility into the granular configuration information of Microsoft IIS which can affect the availability and performance of IT environments running Microsoft IIS.

    The Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) for Windows® Server is a flexible, secure and easy-to-manage Web server for hosting anything on the Web. From media streaming to web application hosting, IIS's scalable and open architecture is ready to handle demanding tasks. It gives Windows-based organizations a Web server that can be securely configured and managed.

    Availability and performance of Microsoft IIS in the IT environment is critical for providing effective business service. With a unique ability to track the configuration parameters and detect changes and differences, no matter how minute, for

    Microsoft IIS, Evolven Comparison allows IT professionals to:
    • Reduce Production Outage Risk: Increase stability of releases and detect unauthorized changes to prevent outages and high impact incidents
    • Minimize System Downtime: Quickly pinpoint to an incident's root-cause and cut time to repair
    • Enhance Security & Compliance: Leverage granular visibility and audit-trail to meet demanding security and compliance requirements

    Accurately managing the configuration parameters of Microsoft IIS is not an easy task considering the complexity of Microsoft IIS and the numerous configuration parameters involved with Microsoft IIS, which include thousands of different configuration parameters in which the misconfiguration or disregard of a single configuration setting can cause an incident with major impact on the entire IT environment and business service.

    Evolven Comparison analyzes and classifies configuration changes and differences, by their impact, for Microsoft IIS. Then Evolven Comparison prioritizes and highlights the changes and differences discovered in Microsoft IIS based on criticality, visually presenting the comparison results for fast and easy analysis. Insignificant changes and differences are ignored. Evolven Comparison even makes effective comparisons for Microsoft IIS Configurations of inherently different environments (e.g. test vs. production).

    Today's modern business systems include interdependent layers of applications and infrastructure, and focusing on only one configuration or a small set leaves room for error, and ignores critical context and interdependencies. The Evolven Granular Configuration Automation solution, Evolven Comparison, focuses on the entire environment in order to ensure a stable business service that meets agreed-to service levels.
