6:30 - 7:45 Highly Available Apache for the Masses | Martin Smith, Dan Stoner

(Attempts at) Highly Available, Fault Tolerant, Distributed Apache for the Masses

The Apache HTTP Server, commonly referred to as Apache, is a web server software notable for playing a key role in the initial growth of the World Wide Web. [1] Apache httpd has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April 1996, and celebrated its 17th birthday as a project this February. [2]

The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain an
open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including UNIX and
Windows NT. The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient
and extensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the
current HTTP standards.

Martin Smith and Dan Stoner are members of the Linux team at the UF
Computing & Networking Services' Open Systems Group. They will be presenting an evolution of designs for highly available, fault tolerant, and distributed Apache servers for bulk hosting customers.
