NGINX, the popular lightweight web-server alternative to Apache, is reaching some impressive milestones.

Yesterday I wrote about the NGINX 1.6 stable release but making news after that article yesterday was a press release out of the commercial NGINX entity stating they've grown 52 percent year-over-year and now power 146 million websites globally.

One year ago they were at under 100 million server deployments but now they have soared to nearly 150 million. NGINX powers many of the largest web-sites like WordPress, Netflix, Pinterest, and tons of other sites. Trying to push NGINX even further, developers are working on architectural improvements to the NGINX server, centralized management tools, a third-party module API, and many other features.

More details on NGINX's accomplishments can be found via their press release from yesterday.
