Apache Web Server

If you are only serving up simple websites such as those on WordPress or plain html, then it might be well suited for that. Higher traffic websites or heavy load websites might be better suited for Nginx server as it spreads out the traffic among several threads.

Oracle WebLogic

Oracle WebLogic server is well suited if you want a powerful and scalable application server to deploy a complete J2EE stack app. Due to the heavier nature of the application server, it is more suited for larger applications with heavy usage. If you want to deploy a small app with minimal access from users, a more light-weight application server like Tomcat may be more suitable.

Oracle WebLogic

  • It is the best application server to host an application across an enterprise. Not only to do you get a summary of your complete environment which includes the servers, cluster etc., you can dig deeper and even find details about individual threads.
  • Extremely easy deployment that can be done through few clicks. You can view the state, health and type of your deployment making it easier to debug when something goes down.
  • Enriched feature of Security Realms makes it easy to add new users to an environment, tie them to a group, and look into credential mappings.

Cons

Apache Web Server

  • Sometimes a little hard to patch.
  • If you're not careful with the settings, you can easily provide too much information about your server to people you don't want to.
  • If you're not familiar with text configuration files, it can get a little hairy, as there is no GUI interface for setting it up.

Oracle WebLogic

  • There needs to be a graphical tool to develop certain scripts used for maintenance of the environment. It may get tedious to debug the scripts provided by Oracle.
  • UI can become even more intuitive & easy on the eyes.

I would have given it a 10 but sometimes the hogging threads become a issue and needs server bounce. Except that, we are very pleased with the product.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Web Server

Apache is terrific. Zeus is actually built on Apache and adds a mediocre at best interface to controlling it. IIS is only good on Windows. Netscape servers are probably not even around anymore, but when they were, were the absolute worst. I couldn't move my office off of them fast enough.

Oracle WebLogic

Weblogic is heavy machinery for medium/large enterprises, while Jboss can be used discreetly. Glassfish is the ancestor of Weblogic and the advantage is the free Enterprise version. If you don't have much to invest, Glassfish 3 could be a great alternative. Apache Tomcat and other web containers can be used if you don't need J2EE support.

Return on Investment

Apache Web Server

  • Since there is no cost, ROI is infinite.
  • Its ease to deploy has made it simple to deploy new servers in minutes instead of hours when we need to add more servers to handle increased loads.
  • Management of the servers is simplified by being able to copy configs (or sometimes the entire Apache directory) from one server to another to get things up and running in limited time.

Oracle WebLogic

  • Good Management in the JDBC control allows early detection of problems that may impair the performance of the application. Open connections in JDBC translate into lost money for support processes
  • The cost may be high, but the return on investment comes quickly due to reduced incidents on web infrastructure
