We have been using a 3rd party SFTP solution to do this but I'm hoping the same functionality is possible natively in IIS 8. I'd like to have a single SFTP instance running on a server that drops connections into a directory based on AD username or possibly
group. The connection would drop some users to a local directory but others across a UNC path to a share on a different server. The point is to have a single central FTP solution that funnels all FTP traffic to multiple servers. I thought I might be able
to accomplish this with FTP User Isolation. In all, I would have about a dozen different accounts going to a dozen different locations either local or remote. Can this be done with IIS8? Thanks.

IIS does not support SFTP at all.
Unless you plan to use FTPS, you should stick to your current solution.

Thanks for the link. That was helpful. FTPS is also fine. We're currently using SFTP but switching as part of this conversion isn't an issue. The root of my question is whether different logins can have different destination directories; including UNC

IIS FTP service does support user isolation and it provides several modes,
You can find the answer there.

This is related to FTPS on IIS 7.5. Does anyone know if there are any limitations put on how much data can be pulled/pushed by FTP users, and can that be modified for accept 30-50GB files?
Currently, using IIS 7.5 on 2k8 R2. I am using User Isolation and I haven't set any disk quotas.

Microsoft failed to update their documentation, but that article applies to FTP 7, 7.5, 8, and 8.5 (so starting from Windows Vista to Windows 8.1 as well as the server editions), both in classic FTP and FTPS.
To utilize disk quotas, you need to follow this article,
