We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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."

More Apache Web Server Pros »

"The most valuable feature of this solution is the option to design, and the development can happen at the same time.""The ability to stand up a highly available SOA Suite, which has full DR capabilities, in a remote center and synchronize the databases using Data Guard.""We were able to scale out using multiple application and web servers balanced by hardware load balancers and Weblogic clustering.""In case there is something that doesn't work out of the box, you have the flexibility to customize it."

Cons
"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."

More Apache Web Server Cons »

"If the disk space expansion can be made more flexible, not requiring a database restart, it would be a major benefit.""Various parts of SOA, BPEL, and so on, each have their own consoles which need to be accessed individually with different logins. It would be better from an admin perspective if all the consoles were accessible via a single login.""They supply lots of documentation but finding what we need is challenging at times."

Overview

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.

Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, standards-based software suite to build, deploy and manage integration following the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The components of the suite benefit from consistent tooling, a single deployment and management model, end-to-end security and unified metadata management. Oracle SOA Suite helps businesses lower costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets, regardless of the environment (OS, application server, etc.) they run in, or the technology they were built upon. Its easy-to-use, re-use focused, unified application development tooling and end-to-end lifecycle management support further reduces development and maintenance cost and complexity.
