Today I ran up to quite intresting product from Russia - Nginx.

Nginx is high performance web and proxy server and, what I have heard, it's capable to run quite high load on very low requirements. Regarding to this article, is using Nginx as load balancer, handling over 8000 requests / sec. That's quite impressive!

What's best, Nginx is really lightweight. According to testimonials in Nginx wiki, this web server can be run with really low RAM. Excellent.

I'm going to screw 'round with this piece of software now. Going to report you back later!
