competitors (not written in Erlang).

Nginx or Varnish (https://www.varnish-cache.org/) or any HTTP accelerator are out of this challenge scope.

I'm aware of that rule (Steve Vinoski post: http://steve.vinoski.net/blog/2011/05/09/erlang-web-server-benchmarking/). 
Thanks anyway.

Why it's so hard to just play the game guys?
