Why is Xitami Fantastic?

Xitami is free, fast, and simply really good at its job. This is a professional web server that will run out of the box but lets you configure it every possible way. Many of the best ideas in Xitami came from the thousands of people who use it every day for their intranet and internet web sites. It won't crash when you start using it heavily, and it won't slow-down your system.

The Technology Behind Xitami

Xitami is at least as fast as any other web server. It is based on the high-performance SMT multithreading technology developed by iMatix. SMT is Open Source technology, freely available as source code.
Xitami is portable to 16-bit and 32-bit Windows, to OS/2, most Unix systems, and Digital OpenVMS. It uses the SFL portability library developed by iMatix. SFL is Open Source technology, also freely available as source code.
