dontknowshit14065dYet, our infrastructure manager has spent months trying to implement clustering with IIS, I shit you not.
How about fuck IIS, what a dog shit piece of software, even ms is ditching it
12bitfloat476065dReverse proxies are absolutely necessary if you care at all about security. In fact you should have two layers of reverse proxies opposite each other with proper firewalls. Nothing bad can come in, nothing secret can come out
Exactly, but they’d rather expose an IIS server directly to the web.
There are multiple heavy web apps all written in .net and of course using IIS that run like dog shit.
Sure there are firewalls, but that goes without saying.
I suggested moving to .net core and using a decent web server as a reverse proxy with some containers in a cluster but was shot down as it’s also, “too complex”.
No, it’s not complex, that is our fucking job!
If they want to continue with shitty slow web servers exposed directly to the web then I can’t stop them
The joys of the windows server ecosystem. Love the dotnet, hate the IIS as the saying goes.
