What do you like best?

* Fast robust, secure and lightweight server.

* Best suited for Rails applications.

* Easy to maintain and manage with Nginx. For me it's best that it has Nginx integrations.

* No extra settings and maintenance required specially for Phusion Passenger.

* It's free to use with Nginx, only extended feature requires pro / paid versions.

* It's highly scalable

* It is based on Out-of-process architecture that is really great for Rails applications.

* It's also having integrations with apache.

* It is having Asynchronous I/O, it helps to increase speed.

* Very low bandwidth required for Phusion Passenger Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Some extended feature required pro / paid version of Phusion Passenger like: Multithreading Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In early days we were using Unicorn for our Rails applications, We found memory leaks and other issues with it, Then shifted to puma, Puma is a good server but still was facing a lot of issues like, High memory and have to manage service separately for puma.

As Traffic goes higher, finally we shifted to Phusion Passenger, It's save our life, now we have lesser memory and high throughput. We don't have to manage separate service for Phusion Passenger. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Phusion makes it trivial to run Ruby or python apps on top of Apache or Nginx.

Setup is very simple, has a simple to follow wizard and you should be able to be up and running in no time Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some default configurations are weird, like default concurrency, caching, gzip and etags. I mean, they work but it is highly like you wanna fiddle with them which, to me, means they have poor default values.

Still, docs make it easy to configure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making rails apps scale easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
