Top 5 Lightweight Web Servers

Postby thomas » 2014年 Jun 20日, 10:56

However, Apache is not the only capable open source web server. There are many alternative web servers that offer high-performance, but place less demands on hardware. Web servers that use less resources, low memory footprint, and low CPU load are attractive, enabling inexpensive hardware, such as the Raspberry Pi, to be used as a web server.

There is a good range of lightweight web servers released under an open source license. To provide an insight in the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 5 high quality open source lightweight web servers. Hopefully there will be something of interest here for anyone who wants to run a web server.

nginx Powerful and efficient web server and reverse proxy

lighttpd Secure, fast, compliant and very flexible web server

Cherokee Extremely fast, flexible and embeddable web server
A static build for embedded devices can occupy as little as 200KB, give or take.
In terms of processing power, it has been known to work with as little as 133Mhz ARM processors.
It could very well work on something smaller, but we haven’t really had the chance to try it out.

Bauk Advanced architecture and unique design with many original features
