Intuitive configuration management interface

Orca provides all of the above out-of-the-box for IIS configuration, so you don’t need to do any scripting yourself. However, if you’ve written your own PowerShell or Batch scripts, or you just have a command you need to run, it’s easy to add these steps in the Orca workflow as well.

We understand that sometimes configuring IIS is more than just automating one step. With Orca, you can create and execute repeatable workflows that also configure necessary items at the OS level.

With Orca you can create, modify, or delete:

  • Files and Directories (Including Permissions)
  • Registry Keys and Values
  • System Services

Automating IIS configuration with Orca saves time and errors.
