Re: x5 Speed Increase on Server Side with Swift?
The Reg got who carried out the benchmarks wrong. They were done by a developer of the framework, with "the Centre of Excellence in Next Generation Networks just lending them hardware on an isolated network.
There are a lot of issues with the tests. Apart from comparing frameworks with different priorities, they tuned their framework against the tests, and the way the other frameworks were configured was sub-optimal (to say the least): https://www.codeandmore.co.uk/posts/perfect-pointless-benchmarks/
The Django test was particularly bad - but I do a lot of Django development so it may just be I spotted more there.
