The majority of all web servers using Apache are Linux web servers.Apache is developed and maintained by an open community of developers under the auspices of the Apache Software Foundation. »

Because it is non-blocking and uses epoll, it can handle thousands of simultaneous standing connections, which means it is ideal for real-time web services.
