Today, the two most amazing open source servers, Apache HTTP and Nginx are ruling the internet world. Apache being the oldest is being used on large scale by the enterprises. However with the growing online traffic, Apache server deprives in terms of scaling and performance due to load of multiple processes, resulting into additional consumption of computer memory. On the other hand, Nginx being able to manage large amount traffic is the second most used proxy server. Nginx was written particularly to address the performance limitations of the Apache server. Thus, Nginx being an emerging technology is now slowly taking over Apache.
