Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I have been using the Apache webserver for over 20 years. At my current organization, we use it all over the place. From serving static pages to full-blown web applications. We also use it as a proxy to pass traffic to tomcat applications. It is used across the whole organization and it is our goto web server. It is incredibly configurable and robust. Never a problem. We use it to serve https and use PHP extensively.

Apache Web Server is used for hosting some of our internal web applications and database instances including a few partner/customer facing web applications and websites that need fine tuned web servers and performance.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our company is currently operating three websites that are running on Apache Web Server. Apache handles page/file requests and serves those to visitors. Apache supports PHP, which is what WordPress is built on. All of our websites are WordPress sites. Apache supports common functions necessary to site administration including FTP and URL rewriting.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We have implemented Apache Web Server in many projects: Everything from configuring Apache ourselves, to the bread and butter of most of our projects: data science. While we have also implemented other open source web Servers (lighttpd, et al), Apache is a package we come back to time and again. Our favorite toolchain is to implement a small, custom Linux distribution running nothing but Apache WS.

We have virtualized/containerized Apache, ran Apache on bare-metal, and even found some uses on embedded platforms such as Raspberry PI, Commodity (i.e. cheap) x86 hardware, pfSense (which includes its own Apache version, which we update and upgrade out of the box), firewalls, routers, gateways, and other devices. Additionally, with IoT related projects, we even load a small version of Apache to run PhP scripts, or upload environmental data from remote locations.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Apache the server to serve all of the clients' websites which require LAMP stack and have been able to deliver medium to complex applications using Apache server. It is used by whole Web Development department and it allows a large number of HTTP requests, configuring access restrictions to certain files efficiently and see a real-time graph of network and hardware resource utilization hence giving us the ability to make informed decisions to optimize throughput and overall performance of the system.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I've used Apache Web Server for years and years. We have not found a more solid web server with as much support and customizability to serve pages for our website. Apache is widely used by millions of sites on the internet, and for good reason. The PHP, Perl, and other language support is extensive and very helpful.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I use Apache (as part of the LAMP stack) to run several web servers that I use in my organization. The web servers provide services such as help desk ticketing and tracking, intranet site, project management, network monitoring, and conference room scheduling. This allows me to provide these applications for no cost through the use of open-source software.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Apache web server allows for the display of websites to the consumer. It has become the standard for website configuration. It is fairly simple to set up and configure your website for display to the outside world, including secure websites having to use an SSL certificate. It allows for the rerouting of directories and even setting up private directories inaccessible to the outside world. You can specify what files can be seen as well.

Apache web server is supports major organizations and multiple web sites as their front end receiving host. This web server acts as the host to direct traffic into the web sites used by organizations and comes equipped with security and other protocols necessary to cut off unauthorized users.This also has a major role in authorizing user traffic and preventing unintended users/traffic from accessing the organizations' web site data.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Apache Web Server on almost all of our *nix web servers. It is being used by Enterprise IT as well as most other departments. It is a solid web server, that allows for all the customizations and configurations that are needed. It allows us to easily and reliably set up web servers with a known configuration and reliability.
