List of Web 2.0 Startups & Their Servers of Choice

Saw a question  on LinkedIn a couple of days ago asking what server a web startup should saddle up with. The answers, of course, were “it depends”. Lots of things help determine “which server”. There are lots of choices to make. What’s interesting is the decision other startups have settled on. Anticipate some people are going to ask, “How’d you assemble this list?” I’ll preempt that by directing you to NetCraft.

[EDIT: Have begun adding a few new sites here and there. Check back semi-sort-of, but-not-too often.]

For instance (and this is by no means comprehensive. So… feel free to comment with your site of choice to help round out the list):

    Interesting post. Netcraft is a good source, but I wouldn’t call it dispositive.

    The Apache/Linux/Big-IP dominance is telling and accurate.

    Cheers for picking vSNAX for your list. We appreciate it.
