It is meant to showcase the latest technologies, and because of this it can be less stable than other commercial servers.
It is very difficult to find a server that is both free and this easy to use and install. The Sambar Server supports a wide variety of applications, and if you want more functionality, you can program your own APIs in C or C++. The server is reliable, not, perhaps as reliable as the Unix/Apache Web system, but certainly reliable enough for the average small to mid-sized business.
