Ashish-KamatSenior Manager at a tech services company
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."
"A great solution for creating program solutions in a framework for Microsoft Windows quickly and easily."
"The most valuable features are the Domain Controller and the WBFS Manager."
"The most valuable feature is the financial accounting."
"When it comes to the user interface, the context is better than other tools because it is easier to use."
"The .NET framework is a mature platform that is very helpful and saves time during the software development process."
"As we are a software company, we find that accessing resources using this technology is easier compared to the others."
"I'd rate the solution as highly stable."
"Ease of use, the richness of the libraries and basically very good development tools."
"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."
"It would be nice if the framework were able to work with additional environments and systems like Linux."
"Better integration with other tools to make the operation faster would be an improvement."
"This solution should include Power BI so that we don't have to use any third-party tools."
"They should have more training materials available that are specific to .NET. We spend a lot of money training our engineers."
"If Microsoft would provide a monthly subscription at a cost that a developer can afford then it would be really helpful."
"In the next release, I am looking for more advanced technologies such as socket communication and enhanced features like realtime chat with the clients."
"The pricing is a bit expensive."
"The .NET open source community could be larger."
"The apache software is free, open-source."
"The product and support for this solution are free for everyone."
"The pricing could be cheaper."
"There is a Community Edition that can be used free of charge, but the licensing cost for the Enterprise version is quite high."
"If you want to develop an enterprise-level application, you have to purchase the enterprise-level development license."
"The Microsoft .NET Framework is free of charge, without licensing cost."
"For the moment I can only give the product a rating of five out of ten since only some of the customers will be satisfied, those that have the financial resources for hosting a platform on Windows Server."
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 12th in Application Infrastructure with 4 reviews while Microsoft .NET Framework is ranked 2nd in Application Infrastructure with 13 reviews. Apache Web Server is rated 8.0, while Microsoft .NET Framework is rated 8.4. The top reviewer of Apache Web Server writes "Has good security, speed and traffic handling features ". On the other hand, the top reviewer of Microsoft .NET Framework writes "Has improved our efficiency in the time it takes to program a solution". Apache Web Server is most compared with IIS, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, NGINX Plus, Zend PHP Engine and IBM DataPower Gateway, whereas Microsoft .NET Framework is most compared with Magic xpa Application Platform, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Portal, IBM BPM and IBM WebSphere Application Server.
