Sparky - a lean, mean webserving machine

Sparky is the name of our new bespoke web server. It does page precompression and lots of caching to deliver results and pages as fast as possible. Its been in development on and off for over three years but hasn't quite managed to oust Apache - that is until now. Recent tests on our cluster show it's faster and consumes 40% less RAM.

So it's finally bye bye Apache ... and welcome Sparky!
