CNET News.com: Apache users to get some service support soon

“Apache, a software technology that serves up Web pages to a
user’s browser, will be following in the commercial footsteps of
Linux soon.”

“Covalent Technologies, a Nebraska company that offers Apache
add-ons and consulting services, will begin providing 24-hour
technical support for the free Web server software beginning in the
end of October.”

Apache is very popular among non-commercial Web sites. Yet
for business users, “one of the stumbling blocks has been the lack
of an actual support entity
,” said Randy Terbush, Covalent’s
chief executive and one of the original founders of the Apache Web
server project, started in 1995.”
