In the past few years, many new web proxy servers have come onto the scene with new performance promises and features. Servers based on non-blocking I/O bring claims of greatly improved performance.
At the same time, FastCGI has become more widely used, giving people a possible alternative to mod_perl.
This talk will help you choose the right architecture for you by presenting a useful set of benchmarks and a comparison of strong points and key features. Although the focus is on Perl applications, the proxy server comparison may be of interest to a wider audience.
