The Rise and Rise of Nginx

The Nginx event-driven server (can serve as a Reverse Proxy / HTTP Server /  HTTP Cache / Load Balancer) seems to be in a solid growth phase as shown in the below graphs. 

The rise to prominence is obvious because in terms of performance and concurrency Nginx blows Apache out of the water – Nginx can support 10,000 client connections using only 10MB RAM (see 36:00 onwards in this TechSnap video).
