We Go Green

(Powered by the Barracuda Application Server)


Update: 2018: We ran the server on a SheevaPlug for 4 years. The server is now running on a VPS.

This web site is powered by FuguHub, a Barracuda Application Server derivative product. The FuguHub server runs on a SheevaPlug, which is an embedded ARM9 device. Our online domains realtimelogic.com, barracudaserver.com, sharkssl.com, and FuguHub.com are all hosted on the same 5 Watt device. The SheevaPlug is equipped with a Marvell Kirkwood ARM processor.


FuguHub is, in fact, so light weight that we could choose to host hundreds of domains on the same SheevaPlug. Products derived from the Barracuda Application Server SDK, such as FuguHub, are ideal for low powered devices such as the SheevaPlug.

FuguHub Benchmarking -- Speed Test

The Barracuda Application Server is extremely fast at dynamic content generation. We compared FuguHub delivering dynamically generated Lua Server Pages to the Apache Server delivering static content. We were able to generate dynamic content much faster than Apache could deliver static content.

Benchmarking Apache and FuguHub

Two minute speed test on a Raspberry Pi:

  • Apache: 26,624 static files
  • FuguHub: 45,577 dynamic pages

See the FuguHub benchmarking results for details.
