Resin Web Server
Resin Web Server has been powering high traffic sites for over a decade. Known for its performance, extensibility and reliability, Resin Web Server is the web server of choice for high traffic sites.
“The Resin application server has been experiencing strong growth over the past 12 months; seeing an almost tenfold growth from 480k hostnames in February 2011 to 4.7M…”
- Netcraft, Web Server Survey, February 2012
Netcraft is a respected authority on market share analysis of web servers, hosting providers, content technologies and much more since 1995.
The entire Resin product line’s incredible growth is driven by fast performance, built-in server monitoring capabilities and extreme reliability. Resin’s unsurpassed reliability is a testament of its Health System and Watchdog process. Resin’s Health System provides server monitoring and JVM monitoring and full server recoverability (self healing).
Resin Web Server is a full web server that’s faster than Apache httpd.
Resin’s web server includes reverse proxy, load balancing, URL rewrites, FastCGI, and HTTP proxy cache. Known as a high performance application server with a fast web server, the site usage explosion was inline with expectations.
Resin Web Server includes the following:
- Powerful and Easy to configure URL rewrite rules
- Easy to configure Virtual Hosting
- FastCGI so you can work with Python (Django), Ruby (RoR), native PHP, and more
- Built-in HTTP proxy cache so you can speed dynamic pages to near-static speeds
- Built-in mod_php like support via Quercus, a PHP clone written in Java
- Cluster aware load balancer that auto shares loads to new application server nodes
- Security: Immune to buffer overflow attacks that plague other Web Servers (mostly Java with small, tight, fast JNI/C)
Extensible without Security Worries
Resin Web Server has the most extensible plugin system of any Web Server (not to mention the most widely documented and understood). This is because you extend Resin Web Server by using the Java Servlet API. If your developers know how to write Java Servlets or Java Servlet Filters, then they can extend Resin Web Server. You can sleep at night knowing your developers are not writing code that is subject to buffer overflows. Resin has the speed of C with the extensibility of Java as key pieces are written in C, but the rest is all Java. This combination gives Resin nginx™ comprable speed and extensibility without vulnerabilities.
Resin Pro: Resin Web Server
If you buy Resin Pro, you get the watchdog and health system. This makes Resin Web Server completely monitor-able and recoverable. It can self heal. You can find out exactly any problem with graphs, base line analysis, anomaly analysis, and custom metrics and graphs. Anomaly analysis actually allows you to find problems before they become major problems. These are features the other leading Web Server just don’t offer. Resin can be fast and full featured because it is based on Java for extensibility but uses C in key areas for raw speed. Resin Web Server is included with Resin Pro as is our caching server and application server.
