.3.8"> Zeus Web Server 3.3.8

Although its best characterized as a speed demon, Zeus Web Server 3.3.8 provides a breadth of features and capabilities to rival any other Web server on the market. With broad platform support, extensive Web application support and strong administrative features buttressing its performance and scalability strengths, Zeus Web Server is an excellent choice for any large, busy Web site.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Zeus 3.3.8 can be up and running in a very short time. Businesses whose sites were previously based on Apache should be able to move their applications easily to the new server and thereby gain better performance and easier management.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Some of the raw performance gains Zeus offers are being threatened by new kernel-level Web servers, but if Zeus features stay strong, it should remain an excellent choice for a Web server.

Excellent browser-based administration; broad platform and application support; very good performance.

Mac version currently lacks some capabilities; doesnt run on Windows systems; unlike Apache, it costs money.
