Speed on static documents. Apache is written in some C, while Tomcat is
written in the considerably slower Java.

Also you can load-balance via the apache, having one front-end apache
server, and 49 "backend" Tomcats. The apache can then do sticky session
load balancing between those tomcats.

It's a more messy config using both, but it works!
