Zeus is fast and various companies like BT use it. The web server isn't
the jewel in the crown, however. It's things like Zeus' traffic manager
and global load balancing that are the key technologies. If you do a deal
with Zeus they'll probably throw in the web server stuff for a song.

BTW, no-one has mentioned Cherokee as a fast web server. They are
claiming to faster than everyone else.
