As mentioned in the February 17th Community News letter [1]:

School server development is *just now* beginning to ramp up, and so
such things are still in the air. I wouldn't be surprised if a
non-apache server was used (something in python, or just lighterweight
in general), but the server would be sufficiently powerful to run
Apache if they want its featureset.

The Wiki has a relevant stub articles about the server you might be
interested in [2]. And there are a couple Trac tickets to look at,
specifcally [3].

Hope this helps.
