Welcome to part five, the final post in our series of commonly-asked questions that we were asked at the 2011 RSA conference. In this post, we will be covering the following questions:
Where is yaSSL located?
Does the yaSSL Embedded Web Server compete with nginx?
Q: Where is yaSSL located?
yaSSL is based out of Bozeman, MT (Google Maps) with staff in both Portland, OR and Seattle, WA.
Q: Does the yaSSL Embedded Web Server compete with nginx?
The yaSSL Embedded Web Server is designed for embedded platforms and environments, and as such does not compete directly with nginx. These two web servers have several differences which make them both optimal for different environments:
–The yaSSL Embedded Web Server is smaller and more portable than nginx, making it ideal for resource-constrained embedded platforms. nginx is is around 700kB, whereas the yaSSL Embedded Web Server can be built as small as 100kB.
–nginx has more features than the yaSSL Embedded Web Server, but they come at the expense of size.
–nginx is ideal for handling high loads in enterprise environments, whereas the yaSSL Embedded Web Server has been optimized for speed and size on embedded devices.
As you can see by the list above these two web servers are not in direct competition – nginx is catered to enterprise and non-embedded platforms while the yaSSL Embedded Web Server has been optimized for embedded environments.
