“Nginx + Memcached + MySQL + HHVM + PHP” Package Powered by SAIN3 (HVM)

A fundamental software bundle includes Nginx, Memcached, HHVM-FastCGI, MySQL, PHP and Webmin. This software bundle provides a high performance software environment by optimizing the memcached caching mechanism and accelerating PHP with HipHop Virtual Machine (HHVM-FastCGI).


  1. Nginx
Nginx is a high performance, open source web application accelerator that helps over 37% of the world’s busiest websites deliver more content, faster, to its users. Companies deploy Nginx to manage the complexities and pitfalls associated with HTTP and to make their web applications more responsive, scalable, fast and secure. Nginx is commonly installed between the network and the application to offload concurrency processing, URL switching, HTTP load balancing, SSL termination, caching, and security policies.
  1. HipHop Virtual Machine (HHVM)
HipHop Virtual Machine (HHVM) is an open-source virtual machine designed for executing programs written in Hack and PHP by using a just-in-time (JIT) compilation approach to achieve superior performance.
  1. Webmin
Webmin is a web-based system configuration tool for Unix-like systems. With it, it is possible to configure operating system internals, such as users, disk quotas, services or configuration files, as well as modify and control open source apps. If you want to manage Apache and MySQL through the Web page, Webmin is the right tool for you.


  • Optimized memcached caching mechanism with memc-nginx-module and srcache-nginx-module.
  • Process the PHP scripts by using HipHop Virtual Machine (HHVM-FastCGI).
  • One click to install. Quick and responsive deployment.
