Internet Information Services (IIS) and tomcat are web servers. IIS was developed by Microsoft, which only runs on Windows operating system, it is best for windows users since they are produced in the same country, it is currently considered the second most popular web server. IIS was producing for the use of NT OS, which runs on mainframes and web servers.

The problem one will face using the IIS is that it gets affected by a lot of malware viruses. Tomcat was produced by Apache as a Java/JSP; it does not process HTML documents. Tomcat is used by many developers because it’s free, and there is support from the community. It can run on any operating system, including Linux and UNIX and the apple operating system.

IIS stands for Internet Information Services. It is a web server developed by Microsoft, and it is an excellent option for most people who are already happy with using Windows. Tomcat is another server that does not process HTML documents. However, it is intended to run Java and JSP applications. Apache's own web server has created Tomcat, but it is also compatible with IIS or any other server available.

The name Tomcat was presented to the open-source Java/ JJP server, which was prepared to work together with their web server. However, Tomcat is best in what it does because it is only competition, JRun has had complaints from users for being problematic.

IIS actually stands for Internet Information Services, and it is a web server that was developed by the renowned Microsoft, and it is a good choice for those that are really interested in using windows. Tomcat, on the other hand, is also a web server that was designed to run JSP and Java applications but not meant for processing HTML documents. It is primarily developed to serve as communication with the webserver Apache, and it is likewise IIS compatible or any other available web server.

IIS was developed to be used in the Microsoft NT Operating System, which is meant for web servers and mainframes. While Apache retains the first position in the usage of web servers, IIS is the runner-up server. Due to some compelling functionalities which IIS offered, it is well chosen among people. But when it comes to running Java and JSP applications, then tomcat needs to be installed as it plays the role best.
