G-WAN is an extremely fast Web application server. It runs scripts written in ANSI C. This server is safer than others, since it uses less code, no buffer copies, and no library calls that can lead to buffer overflows. G-WAN can outperform IBM Apache, Microsoft IIS, and Sun GlassFish by several orders of magnitude, both on Windows and Linux.
iPfaces is a framework for simple creation of native, form-oriented network applications for mobile devices. The aim of the solution is to screen the programmer completely out from the mobile platform itself, and transfer the entire application logic to the central application server level. Developers with experience with one of the supported Web technologies (ASP.Net, Java, and PHP) may start working with iPFaces virtually immediately.
Gefest Web Home Server is a simple Web server with a graphical user interface. It can be used without special knowledge. Any user can install and share folders on the Internet or a local network. The server allows you to watch video directly from another PC. Password protection is supported. The server allows you to review all user activity through the server log and activity log.
Rainbows! is an HTTP server for sleepy Rack applications. It is based on Unicorn, but designed to handle applications that expect long request/response times and/or slow clients. For Rack applications not heavily bound by slow external network dependencies, consider Unicorn instead as it simpler and easier to debug.
lb is a very small and efficient libevent-based benchmarking tool for HTTP servers. It has been implemented with the main goal to provide a safe and quick replacement for the Apache 'ab' tool. Since its first release, it comes with the ability to benchmark several HTTP servers at the same time, theoretically limited only by operating system limits.
Httpd is a modern httpd for Inferno. It supports HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1, virtual hosting, CGI and SCGI, logging, index file serving for directories, and directory listings, has configurable MIME types, understands range and conditional requests, does HTTP Basic authentication, and supports redirections based on regular expressions.
Unicorn is a Unix and LAN/localhost-optimized fork of the Mongrel HTTP server. It takes full advantage of functionality exclusive to Unix-like operating systems. It will reap and restart workers that die from broken apps, and there is no need to manage multiple processes yourself. Load balancing is done entirely by the operating system kernel. Requests never pile up behind a busy worker. The server does not care if your application is thread-safe or not, as workers all run within their own isolated address space and only serve one client at a time. All Rack applications are supported along with pre-Rack versions of Ruby on Rails via a Rack wrapper. It also supports atomic log cycling, nginx-style binary re-execution without losing connections, before_fork and after_fork hooks, and optional copy-on-write-friendly memory management.
mod_gfx is a configurable Apache module that uses libgd to perform image operations on the fly. Some of the supported image operations are: resize, resample, watermark, and crop. A couple of its special features are origin selection via URI regex and round-robin over a list of hosts.
