  • 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.

  • Apache helps things run smoothly, rarely needing a reboot
  • Gives helpful error messages to solve problems easy
  • Occasionally we have had to modify file upload size, request timeout, and parameter size which is annoying when it has to be done on a lot of servers or cannot be done through code

  • The ROI is generally positive for the time being, since it is open source and free of charge.
  • All investments are merely follow-up activities: Setting up the infrastructure, installing the respective software components
  • The Apache HTTP Server forms the fundament of our infrastructure and is always reliable

  • The greatest positive impact is seen in that with only Apache HTTP Server it is possible to solve various situations of administration of sites, services, or web systems.
  • Due to the type of institution to which I belong, everything that means high performance and streamlining of the institution's processes is a great benefit for those interested.

  • Apache does not cost anything so the ROI is through the roof.
  • Since Apache is part of the Apache foundation and if you use it and it has benefited your organization, then I suggest that you do the right thing and send them a few bucks. You can make a positive impact that way.
  • Apache is the backbone of much of the web services that we offer. The web would not be what it is today had Apache not been there.
  • I can honestly say that there exist almost no negatives to Apache. The only thing that I can think of that might work better is the NGINX web server when serving massive huge amounts of static content, I.E. the adult web industries. But, Apache could still hold its own.

  • Positive: Apache offers world-class software to everyone., While this project is Open Source, it's not without backing and support. Many developers contribute their time to this project. Also, they have back of major open source leaders, such as RedHat, etc.
  • Positive: Apache is extensively configurable: Modules, separate site files, and the ability to re-load on the fly make it extremely powerful and fast
  • Negative: Apache has a lot of configuration files and Modules. If you do not spend some reasonable time with it, you will not get your Kit configured correctly, which could open you up to needless security flaws and holes, as well as underperforming Websites (to name a couple of problems).

  • 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.

  • Apache web server helped us in building client applications without much investment in the underlying server configuration which gives us the ability to start on a new project quickly and upgrade its resources as and when needed.
  • Using software which is well-supported by a community of open source contributors makes tasks easy and affordable when need help since a couple of minutes on Google saves a couple of dollars every time and you don't need a specialized support person unless there is something significant needing to be changed.

  • Recently, we've had an issue with one of our sites constantly crashing due to too much traffic. Apache had to be continually tweaked to allow for the extra traffic. This caused some downtime for the client and us.
  • Normally, once you set up Apache, you can usually just forget about it and let the server run.

  • There is less negativity involving the world's most researched, well supported web server with a strong community that helps in trouble shooting issues pertaining to all areas possible.
  • Business impact is on the positive side as the cost of the software is free and there are no licensing hassles.
  • apache web server also serves as a reverse proxy server as well in helping consumers redirect traffic as needed and secure entry into their websites. This server when customized also acts in authorizing users into their sites and redirecting appropriate traffic. It provides a high level of opportunity for customization.

  • 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.
