As I mentioned earlier, the Apache HTTP Server has a small disadvantage compared to the competition (NGINX) in terms of performance. If you run websites that really have a lot of visitors, NGINX might be the better alternative.
On the other hand, the Apache HTTP Server is open source and free. Further functionalities can be activated via modules. The documentation is really excellent.

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

Pros
Apache
  • Street Cred: Apache Web Server is the Founder for all of Apache Foundation's other projects. Without the Web Server, Apache Foundation would look very different. That being said, they have done a good job of maintaining the code base, and keeping a lot of what makes Apache so special
  • Stability: Apache is rock-solid. While no software is perfect, Apache can parse your web sources quickly and cleanly.
  • Flexibility: Need to startup your own Webpage? Done. Wordpress? Yup. REST Endpoint? Check. Honeypot? Absolutely.

Cons
Apache
  • The default configurations which comes with Apache server needs to get optimized for performance and security with every new installation as these defaults are not recommended to push on the production environment directly.
  • Security options and advanced configurations are not easy to set up and require an additional level of expertise.
  • Admin frontend GUI could be improved to a great extent to match with other enterprise tools available to serve similar requirements.

  • sometimes in linux OS we face several issues during start and stop. Sometimes Zombie process still exists after clean shutdown that time we need to manually kill those processes otherwise it might not start properly. Here SAP can improve.

Apache
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
I has a lot more features, except that IIS is more integrated in a Windows environment. But now with .net core also possible from Apache it would work anywhere really. Only in a full Windows environment where full integration is needed I would chose to go for IIS. Otherwise Apache it is.

Most of the other applications only provide one business module to use, whereas SAP Netweaver Application server can cover all business areas. It provides both ABAP & Java features, meaning it can host Portal applications and be also used for having online transactions. The application codes are easily modifiable & can be made to fit user needs. This application is suited for all type of business demands

Return on Investment
Apache
  • Works as intended, so it's less to worry about.
  • Works great on elastic environments (like EC2).
  • As an Open Source project, you can get support for almost any problem you can have.
  • Configuration files, while powerful, can be tricky to dominate for some.

  • 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.
