Fantastic Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 review in ServerWatch

This morning ServerWatch posted a very positive review of Sun Java Web Server 7.0. It provides an overall look at the new features included in Sun Java System Web Server 7.0, then does a performance comparison with the popular Apache Web Server.

Charlie Schluting, the reviewer, was quite impressed with the server and had a number of great things to say about the installation, security and performance. Key highlights include:

  • “The Sun Web Server is very performance-oriented.”
  • “Installing Sun Web Server or Sun Proxy Server is an amazingly simple process.”
  • “Sun created DoS attack awareness and Cross-Site Scripting detection. Both features are desperately needed in Web servers, and Sun has come to the rescue.”
  • “Don’t forget, Web Server is from Sun. It is highly multithreaded, extremely robust, and 64-bit capable on Solaris AMD64 and SPARC platforms.”
  • “Sun always excels at multithreaded performance. … In summary, Sun Web Server is generally two times as fast as Apache.”

This review is extremely positive all around. Charlie ends his evaluation with the following: “In summary, Sun Web Server is generally two times as fast as Apache. … The Sun Web Server is fast, flexible, scalable, and a downright joy to run. Other Web servers may still have some benefits, mainly because of administrator familiarity, but if performance and ease of management are paramount, Web Server is the way to go.

Kudos to the Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 team!
