    Web Server - OS Performance & Compatibility Issue


    Hi All
    I am a System Architect how moved from a Big Enterprise to a Small Startup.
    I've been Investigating on Web Server and OS Performance and Compatibility
    issues, this majorly draws my attention to evolving web Technologies too.
    Having worked with NT only my knowledge about NON-MS tech. is very limited.

    What I need to know is, what are the dependable Web servers compatible to
    NT4.0, would they be as robust as IIS4 ?
    How long have they been around as Commercial Web servers, any performance,
    functionality (Specially Transaction Processing/ Message Queuing) issues
    when run on NT specially?

    I've known a little about Apache (also that it occupies 53% of commercial
    web servers..!), but most of peaple I talked to have been running it on Unix.

    I'd be delighted to hear from someone who's used, administered non-MS web
    server on NT and/or constructed system over these platforms with Servlets,
    EJB, JINI..!


    Regards

    hi Shil:

    I'd suggest you to use the BEA Weblogic Server. Its performance is outclass.

    Regards
    Tanveer.

    If you are going to use NT use IIS. There is no way around it insofar as
    performance and stability. You might try using solaris as your web server
    and use NT as your RMI base. In other words place your CORBA orb or RMI
    objects on your nt box and run servlets from the solaris. This way your
    web traffic can be maintained by the solaris system (better than NT), but
    still have the NT platform(sounds like you must) in which you place your
    logic objects. Hope this helps
