The Top Web Servers in the Market - A Survey of Web Server Technologies
(Page 5 of 5 )
It is difficult to deduce anything, especially when different surveys of Web technologies give you different answers. The best I could do is give you a few links to such surveys, which you can analyze and then use to make your own decision for what will best suit your situation.
Early on, it was no surprise that Apache was the dominant Web server in the market. But recent surveys state that Microsoft IIS has stolen Apache's crown, at least in production usage. For detailed technical results of the survey, I suggest the link: http://www.port80software.com/surveys/top1000webservers/.
But another survey claims that Apache still dominates IIS. For more information, point your browser to this link: http://www.serverwatch.com/stats/sspace/article.php/3394751
This link features a more generic survey on almost all types of technologies related to Web: http://www.securityspace.com/s_survey/data/
Finally, another survey worth checking can be found here: http://news.netcraft.com/archives/web_server_survey.html
I hope I've shed some light on your choices when it comes to Web servers.
