WebTen outpaces Apple's AppleShareIP 6.0 and WebSTAR for top award.
Santa Barbara, CA, January 18, 1999. The Macworld Editor's Choice for Best Server Software in 1998 went to Tenon Intersystems for their powerful, Apache-based web server, WebTen. WebTen, a point & click Apache-based web server, is the only Macintosh web server that competes well with UNIX and NT in web performance and features, sustaining over 1000 connections per second - more than five times the performance of its competition. The Macworld Editors chose WebTen over its competitors, AppleShare IP and WebSTAR, saying, "Tenon Intersystems' adaptation of the popular Apache Web server offers the fastest way yet to serve a Web site from your Mac." Calling WebTen "powerful and innovative", they went on to say, "WebTen trounces the competition and holds its own against Windows NT, helping to dispel rumors that the Mac isn't a viable Web-serving platform."
WebTen is not only the web server performance leader on Macintosh, but also the feature leader. WebTen supports Apache modules as well as Macintosh-style plug-ins, extending the breadth and depth of Macintosh web serving to encompass the functionality of the more than two million sites that are currently supported by Apache. It supports pure Perl CGI scripts as well as the more limited MacPerl. It supports state-of-the-art web security in the form of an advanced secure sockets layer (SSL) that, unlike its competition, lets a single machine use multiple secure certificates, making WebTen an ideal platform for web-based eCommerce.
Tenon has already released a version of WebTen for Apple's new Mac OS X Server. This new version of WebTen takes advantage of OS X's preemptive multitasking and protected execution environment. As Apple's Mac OS X Server, scheduled to ship in February, evolves into OS X, planned for the 4th quarter, Tenon's WebTen will be extended and enhanced, giving Tenon a year long advantage over its competition on the OS X platform.
