Web Servers Courses

Web Servers respond to HTTP requests from browsers and serve content from Web Sites and Web Applications to clients. SpiralTrain provides classroom training in the administration and management of commonly used Web Servers such as Apache, NGINX, Tomcat, JBoss and ISS.

Web Servers and the HTTP Protocol

The primary function of a web server is to store, process and deliver web pages to clients. The communication between client and server takes place using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). Pages delivered are most frequently HTML documents, which may include imagesstyle sheets and scripts in addition to the text content. Statistics show us that well over 80% of web applications and websites are powered by open source web servers.

Apache

The Apache HTTP Server—often referred to as httpd, or simply Apache—was first launched in 1995, and celebrated its 20th birthday in February 2015. Apache powers 52% of all websites globally, and is by far the most popular web server. While Apache httpd is most often seen running on Linux, you can also deploy Apache on OS X and Windows. Apache is, unsurprisingly, licensed under the Apache License version 2.

NGINX

NGINX was developed as an answer to the so-called C10K problem, which is shorthand for “how do you design a web server which can handle ten thousand concurrent connections?” NGINX is second on a list of open source web servers by usage, running just over 30% of all websites.  NGINX relies on an asynchronous event-driven architecture to help power its goal of handling massive concurrent sessions.

Tomcat

Apache Tomcat is an open source Java servlet container that functions as a web server. Tomcat’s code base was donated by Sun Microsystems to the Apache Software Foundation in 1999, and became a top-level Apache project in 2005. It currently powers just under 1% of all websites. Apache Tomcat is often listed among other open source Java application servers. Some examples are JBossWildfly, and Glassfish.
