At LiteSpeed Technologies we are always striving to incorporate the newest and best cutting-edge technologies into our family of web servers. This of course extends to the new HTTP/2 network protocol standard (published May 2015). We are proud to have been ahead of the curve in this by providing HTTP/2 support as early as January 23rd for OpenLiteSpeed and April 17th for our Enterprise edition. Apache does not yet have a production quality HTTP/2 module while NGINX’s HTTP/2 support will not be available in 2015.
