And here is the moment we’ve all been waiting for … every single site on this server is now served by Nginx. Of course, there is Apache behind for now to smooth out the migration, but The World Domination is right around the corner.

P.P.S.: Can anybody make any sense out if it?
The conclusion is that it doesn’t matter which server you are going to chose. The real performance wins are purely on PHP side. Using an accelerator with caching can multiply the number of requests your infrastructure can maintain.
