Apache Turns Ten

Apache Software Foundation LogoLast month the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) celebrated its 10th anniversary. Apache is the underlying web server technology that powers most of the world’s web sites. According to Netcraft, 49.95% of web sites run on servers powered by Apache. The second closest web server technology belongs to Microsoft at 29.27%.

What is most surprising about those statistics is that Apache is free and open source software and ASF is a non-profit organization. ASF consists of 300 individual members and over 2,000 collaborators from all over the world.

Apache web server is a cross-platform software application that is customisable due to the nature of its license. It runs on Windows, Linux, BSD, Solaris, and many other operating systems.
