Apache HTTP Server

Well Suited: Perfect for hosting your own website. And, I don't mean just an individual with a port of MySpace. I mean an industrial strength, commercial grade replacement for Microsoft IIS. If you need a web server that provides a feature-rich environment with support for multiple sites (hosted in the same server), with such features as virtual hosting, and modular feature design, than Apache Web Server is right on the money. Less Well-Suited: Single page, small feature-set websites. Apache is a lot of trouble for developers to set up, just to send/receive JSON strings of a few bytes. You're really better off using something smaller and faster/simpler (lighttpd for example).

SAP NetWeaver is well suited for contract file storage and management. SAP NetWeaver is less appropriate for entering in time and attendance.

Pros

Apache HTTP Server

  • Apache server is a free and open source multi-platform software which gives ample amount of possibilities and options to use it without worrying about the hardware configurations much; it runs on almost everything!
  • It is easy to configure quickly for a new project requires to set up a barebone server to serve any type of HTTP request.
  • It allows us to configure https with encryption and configure virtual hosts easily.
  • Log files are detailed enough to determine vulnerabilities by providing multiple params which makes it easy to diagnose and debug the root cause of any server issue.

Cons

Apache HTTP Server

  • The one thing that I worry about Apache is the PHP language which is integrated into the platform. I am not sure if PHP has a relevant future. I worry about this because Python is becoming very popular.
  • Some, not so sharp developers, might complain about the configuration file. Yes, it is complex. You need to learn it.
  • Apache SSL documentation can be better.
  • I would like to see video streaming, that would be fantastic.

SAP NetWeaver AS

  • SAP NetWeaver could provide better help desk ticket options.
  • SAP NetWeaver could make user access requests go quicker.
  • SAP NetWeaver could allow for a general, full site search option using keywords.

I give this rating because there is so much Apache documentation and information on the web that you can literally do anything. This has to do with the fact that there is a huge Open Source community that is beyond mature and perhaps one of the most helpful to be found. The only thing that should hold anyone back from anything is that they can not read. RTFM, my friend. And I must say that the manual is excellent.

I did not give SAP NetWeaver a 10, only because getting access to it initially can be tricky and sometimes it's very slow to load up.

Alternatives Considered

Apache HTTP Server

By having a similar purpose, which is to publish and manage access to services, sites, and/or web systems, I have had to implement them to analyze their qualities and virtues, but stability, the power of implementation of different solutions and to be able to expand through own modules and Apache HTTP Server third-party makes it simply the best.

The servers rarely go down. Most of the time are on a programed maintenance schedule. We have our system in 2 countries and it's very fast and 3 years ago just one failed and it was in our principal office. I think that we selected SAP because the numbers of employees and the knowledge that they have of the system. We were about to change but SAP was the best option. Is very stable and complete for our needs.

Return on Investment

Apache HTTP Server

  • It's hard for us to determine ROI from Apache since most of our sites don't receive high traffic and we don't benchmark performance as often or aggressively as we could.
  • Apache is well documented and extremely common in web hosting offerings, so configuring it and working with it becomes easier.
  • Apache supports cPanel which is a web hosting control panel that makes performing tasks such as implementing SSl, managing files, and administrating databases rather easy.

SAP NetWeaver AS

  • Great ROI. We need to invest in new developments, making it more functional for our business.
  • We have requests that couldn't be duplicated. Maybe we need to pay to fix that.
  • We have a lot of transactions and don't have anyone that can guide us to the ones that we need to improve our business.
