Apache development and NGINX development mean that your apps are hosted on fast, scalable, best practice services to support the growth of your web or mobile app back end.
Your application server is like the middle-man, relaying information between the front end and back end to load your interface. Without a server, there would be no application. At Scorchsoft, we've been creating applications for many years and have worked with a vast range of different servers, and there are two that stand out; Apache and NGINX. When building your apps, we'll usually opt for one of these to ensure a reliable, fast-loading application.
Established Server Technologies
Both Apache and NGINX are very well known in the developer world. They're the most used servers for web applications worldwide, and there's a wealth of reviews, tests, and community feedback that show how reliable they are. When we build your applications, we want to use the best software we can, and Apache and NGINX certainly live up to that.
We're always looking for open source solutions when building your application, like Apache and NGINX. There's plenty of reasons for this, like the fact that open-source software is built using a robust coding language, like Java or HTML, which are proven to be reliable. It's also open to everyone, making it easier to install your server and switch it if it's not working for you - there are no lengthy contracts so that you can change at any time. It's flexible, so we can customise and tweak the software to suit your needs, and it has a wealth of developers working to remove bugs and finetune the coding. Whenever open-source software is used, we have access to a huge community of developers who share tips and advice to getting the most out of the code. If you want your application to stand out, that's the edge your software needs.
Stood the Test of Time
Both Apache and NGINX have been used to power websites and applications across the internet for years. Apache was released in 1995, whilst NGINX came later in 2004. Since their release, their popularity hasn't dwindled, with many big-name web sites using one or the other to power their systems. Apache has Apple, eBay, and Etsy on its client list, and NGINX can call Microsoft, Zoom, and Instagram loyal customers. When choosing servers, you shouldn't ignore the long-standing popularity of these two servers.
Compatible with Prominent Technologies
When choosing your server, we need to make sure that it's compatible with a range of prominent technologies. This gives you the flexibility to create your website using different software and to switch and change if what you're using isn't right. Both NGINX and Apache are compatible with a huge range of technology, including Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services.
As well as being compatible with a range of application building technology, Apache and NGINX are also compatible with a range of platforms. When we build your application using either of these services, it can be deployed across operating systems and user devices, from Windows to Unix. In a world where your audience is browsing on a huge spectrum of devices, this cross-platform capability is essential.
Partly because of their open-source frameworks, Apache and NGINX are regularly updated - how else would they have stood the test of time? Bugs are removed, code is refined, and updates are made for emerging technologies. Since their release, the servers have been updated to keep with the times and offer ever better service to users, so you can expect a server to last you for years to come when you use NGINX or Apache.
Handles Server Requests
These are two servers designed to do all of the heavy lifting when it comes to server requests. They can handle thousands of requests simultaneously, so you don't have to worry about scaling up and can offer quick, reliable performance. If you want your application to load and perform at it's best, these are the servers for you. We'll help you decide which of the two is better suited for your purpose, or we'll blend the two to form an unbeatable server.
