In case you have a lot of HTTPS traffic, you'll find that having Apache
handle SSL is faster than the Java implementation that Tomcat can offer.

IMHO for HTTP traffic performance is "almost" comparable as long as you
don't need 100% perf, but for HTTPS Apache is definitely better already
with not so many concurrent requests.
