Sun GlassFish Web Stack is the de facto Web
tools that run the world's Web pages. The most widely used tools, Apache
HTTP, PHP, and MySQL Community (LAMP and SAMP) are joined by
up-and-coming Web technologies like lighttpd, Python, Ruby, and
PostgreSQL as well as related technologies like Squid, mod_proxy, mod_jk
and memcached. These world class technologies are pre-built and
configured to run their best, and are further enhanced to take advantage
of modern Concurrent Multicore Technology (CMT) systems, and security
and developer features from Sun like DTrace, ZFS, Zones, SMF and more.
With optional support for Java™ (with GlassFish Application Server
and Apache Tomcat), MySQL Enterprise, Sun Java System Web Server, and
Sun Java System Web Proxy Server, the Sun GlassFish Web Stack can handle Web
sites of all sizes and requirements.
Sun GlassFish Web Stack provides, enhances, and supports the LAMP and SAMP
technologies you rely on including:

Integration with Solaris and OpenSolaris
Sun GlassFish Web Stack is fully integrated into OpenSolaris for easy
installation and updates. It also supports the security features
of Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris to provide an easy way to get a
secure Web deployment. Support for Sun technologies like Solaris
Management Framework (SMF) and ZFS make administrator's jobs
easier by allowing them to quickly take advantage of these
powerful tools to manage their infrastructure.
Multiple Operating System Support
Using Sun GlassFish Web Stack on multiple platforms provides a consistent
set of servers, with consistent support offerings, from Sun.
Regardless of the Operating System used the same high quality
server software delivers the best possible performance.
More Than The Core
At the center of any LAMP or SAMP installation are the Apache
HTTP Web server, MySQL Community Edition database, and PHP
scripting language. Yet a modern Web deployment often has needs
more than these tools. Sun GlassFish Web Stack provides the most popular
of these technoligies including lighttpd, memcached, Python, Ruby,
Ruby on Rails, Squid, and more.
Sun GlassFish Web Stack is created by the
Web Stack project. The OpenSolaris Web Stack project participates
in the up-stream Open Source projects that provide the software
in the Sun GlassFish Web Stack. The OpenSolaris Web Stack project also
produces its own Web related Open Source projects. We welcome your
participation in our community.
