G-WAN Web Server Claims Speed Records, Features
While it hasn't been talked about much recently, still in existence and seeing new releases is G-WAN, a free but binary-only web server. G-WAN makes claims of being much faster than Apache, IIS, Nginx, and other web-serving alternatives.
It sounds almost too good to be true, but after being around for a few years, the Swiss-based company is still actively developing G-WAN. There are 32-bit and 64-bit Linux binaries available of G-WAN (no source) for free while the Windows binary has been discontinued. The Linux builds were last updated at the end of April.
As far as why G-WAN isn't open-source, the developers claim:
G-WAN is a freeware. It means that it is free for all (commercial users included). But some virulent (anonymous) users claim that this is not enough. They exige G-WAN's source code, and, "at no cost".If anyone has any experience with G-WAN, feel free to share within our forums. If there's sufficient interest, I can also arrange some independent benchmarks of this freeware Linux server software. Those wanting to learn more about G-WAN can visit GWAN.ch.
