Questions and Answers
Where did GoAhead come from?
The GoAhead embedded HTTP server was originally written by Embedthis staff when working at GoAhead Software in 1998 and GoAhead has been embedded in hundreds of products and hundreds of millions of devices. It remains very popular to this day. With the acquisition of GoAhead Software Inc. by Oracle, Oracle asked Embedthis to support existing GoAhead customers and to provide ongoing development and commercial licenses for the GoAhead embedded web server.
How does the GoAhead compare with Ioto?
GoAhead is a simple, compact web server that is useful for small devices without much memory. It is easily ported and has been ported to many embedded operating systems. Ioto is our latest generation web server. It embodies over 20 years of experience with embedded web servers. It is simpler, yet much faster and offers more extensive capabilities.
