OKWS is a toolkit for building fast and secure Web services. It provides Web developers with a small set of tools that has proved powerful enough to build complex systems with limited effort. Despite its emphasis on security, OKWS shows performance improvements compared to popular systems: when servicing fully dynamic, non-disk-bound database workloads, OKWS's throughput and responsiveness exceed that of Apache 2, Flash and Haboob. Experience with OKWS in a commercial deployment suggests it can reduce hardware and system management costs, while providing security guarantees absent in current systems.
