The nginx web server can act as a very capable software load balancer, in addition to its more traditional roles serving static content over HTTP and dynamic HTTP content on the network using FastCGI, SCGI handlers for scripts, WSGI application servers or Phusion Passenger modules. Nginx uses an asynchronous event-driven approach to handling requests. Nginx’s modular event-driven architecture can provide more predictable performance under high loads.
