Author of one of most popular web servers for high load websites, nginx, Igor Sysoev wrote yesterday at his website that he is creating a company to foster nginx development.
According last Netcraft survey nginx is used for over 7% of million busiest sites
Up to date Igor Sysoev has been working in big Russian Internet company Rambler.Ru and nginx was developed as an open-source project while used for Rambler as well.
It’s promised in Ihor’s post that new company will keep nginx open-source.
For now it is unclear will Sysoev combine this new business with employment in Rambler and what will be a revenue model for new company.
