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. ยป

  • Tornado Web Server

  • Tornado is an open source version of the scalable, non-blocking web server. The framework is distinct from most mainstream web server frameworks (and certainly most Python frameworks) because it is non-blocking and reasonably fast. 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.
