EdgeServ is implementing this to increase server performance, website speed and security on our hosting servers. You can read more about LiteSpeed below or find out more here.
LiteSpeed Increases Performance and Stability
With its streamlined event-driven architecture, LiteSpeed Web Server can serve thousands of clients concurrently with minimal memory consumption and CPU usage. LSWS's highly optimized code serves static content faster, taking advantage of high-performance kernel syscalls, while LSAPI maximizes PHP performance. LSWS serves more users, handles traffic spikes, and neutralizes DDoS attacks without new hardware.
LSWS Increases Server Security
LiteSpeed Web Server is mod_security compatible and has a host of built-in anti-DDoS features, like bandwidth and connection throttling. We work constantly to address the Internet's newest security issues — such as SSL BEAST attacks — and release security updates as soon as new attack methods become known. LiteSpeed Web Server is also supported on Atomicorp's Realtime ModSecurity Rules and Atomic Secured Linux.
