Nginx Second Most Used Server on the Web

Via Webmonkey

For the first time since it sprang onto the web in 2004, nginx (pronounced “engine-ex”), the lightweight open source web server that could, has overtaken Microsoft IIS to become the second most used server on the web.

Impressive! Nginx is tailored and optimized for high performance delivery of static content. Nginx powers websites like Facebook, DropbBox, WordPress etc… We’re going to take a look at it, it should handle Manbolo’s 500 connections by week without any problem .
