We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The best thing about Apache is that it is open-source, so implementing my platform on-premises is less expansive than other solutions."
"It is more secure to use Apache and you will have fewer problems than other web services."
"Its community is its most valuable feature. Solving problems is easier on Apache because so many people know this product."
"The solution offers good security."
"The most valuable features of this solution are scalability and performance."
"The solution is much lighter as an application server than other solutions that we used before. We used IBM Workshare Application Server and Oracle WebLogic. They are heavy application servers. JBoss is lighter. It starts faster and iterates its application fast. It's much, much faster than the competition."
"Stable and easy to handle in terms of hosting applications."
"It would be great if technical support for Apache were available in Iran. It is a very important need."
"The GUI for the less experienced users needs some improvement. For some companies, it is hard to configure it if they have not had any experience."
"A monitoring interface would be great for this product. The monitoring dashboards for Apache's models are not included in the basic installation. You can install the basic monitoring model, then connect this model to another monitoring system."
"Things change very fast. We're always on the lookout for better approaches and tools. If the solution falls behind, we may have to switch."
"This solution needs better management UI."
"IBM offered JAVA profiling, which is something I used often and I wish that JBoss had something similar."
"Lacks some functional requirements."
"The apache software is free, open-source."
The Apache HTTP Server Project was founded in 1995 by a group of webmasters, known as The Apache Group, with the aim of developing robust, richly-featured, freely-available and commercial-standard Web (HTTP) server source code. The result was Apache Web Server or Apache HTTP Server, which is an open-source public-domain web server.
This collaborative project has been enhanced ever since with contributions from the core development team and other volunteers situated all over the globe. Also, hundreds of users of this open-source web server have contributed code, ideas, and documentation. The project falls under The Apache Software Foundation, which manages many open-source projects.
Apache Web Server is ranked 11th in Application Infrastructure with 4 reviews while JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is ranked 14th in Application Infrastructure with 3 reviews.
