Nginx is one of the fastest servers out there. With brotli or gzip compression enabled, you will save a lot of traffic.
For simple uploading, you can use nginx's upload module.

Hey, yeah this is established knowledge, but If you believe in benchmarks then nginx is 109th place.

But none of the benchmarks actually cover IO disk read write so who is to say, the server could have blistering request handling and poor IO capabilities.

I guess hardware is a big factor as well.
