Medusa

Medusa is a platform for building high-performance, long-running servers using Python, written by Sam Rushing of Nightmare Software. Medusa uses an asynchronous model for supporting high-performance, single-threaded servers, particularly suitable for HTTP or FTP servers. Although Medusa comes with HTTP and FTP servers, the library is suitable for almost any high-performance/high-load socket-based communication; in fact, the core Medusa engine was recently adopted as part of the standard Python library and can be found on any standard Python 1.5.2 or later distribution.

Medusa is currently used by a number of mission-critical systems around the world. It’s free for personal use, although it requires a license for commercial use.

Information on Medusa can be found at http://www.nightmare.com/medusa.
