Get High Performance, Scalability and Security with Pivotal Web Server

Radically Reduce Deployment Times

Pivotal Web Server is based on the popular Apache web server, providing a familiar, proven foundation for your web tier. But unlike Apache, Pivotal Web Server is pre-compiled, pre-configured and pre-patched, which reduces deployment times from a typical 3 days to 30 minutes. It has a consistent installation process and structure across all supported operating systems, and installation is via self-extracting archive, with no requirements as to install location and no dependencies on graphics libraries. You can patch and upgrade multiple instances as well, for further reduction in deployment and support costs.

See up to 100% Performance Improvements

Pivotal Web Server is pre-compiled and pre-tuned to deliver up to 100% improvement in performance. Because fewer servers are required for a given workload, you'll see your hardware costs go down, as well as increased uptime since workloads remain within web tier capacity. The VMware support team can help fine-tune your Pivotal Web Server to deliver the best performance for your specific needs.

Get Better Security with Less Effort

At the outermost edge of the datacenter, web servers are continually probed by hackers trying to get to your sensitive data. VMware has leading Apache code committers who participate in the ASF security community, so our engineers often learn of security vulnerabilities before they are made public. Whenever possible we prepare and provide a fix for our customers before the vulnerability is officially announced, so you receive advance notification and gain immediate access to the binary fix or workaround. Because we offer guaranteed binary drop-in bug and security-fix help for every platform we support, you can reduce the time you spend on security issues.

Gain Peace of Mind

Pivotal Web Server is guaranteed binary-compatible with open-source Apache HTTP. It features pre-tested compatibility of various Apache mods/extensions, reducing internal support costs.
