Description : Event-based HTTP/WSGI server
Green Unicorn (gunicorn) is an HTTP/WSGI server designed to serve fast
clients or sleepy applications. That is to say; behind a buffering
front-end server such as nginx or lighttpd.
* Optional support for Eventlet and Gevent to provide asynchronous
long-polling ("Comet") connections.
* Process management: Gunicorn reaps and restarts workers that die.
* Easy integration with Django and Paster compatible applications
(Pylons, TurboGears 2,etc
* Load balancing via pre-fork and a shared socket
* Graceful worker process restarts
* Upgrading without losing connections
* Decode chunked transfers on-the-fly, allowing upload progress
notifications or stream-based protocols over HTTP
