I'm not yet sure if "server-side Rust" is actually viable. Some of the language concepts are too complicated, and the obvious benefits (no need for GC and better control for concurrency) don't seem to apply to many server-side things.

Server-side Swift doesn't suffer from these problems, IMHO, but admittedly its Linux support is still a bit questionable, whereas Rust's Linux support is obviously superb. Swift on Linux probably works the best if you're able to use the officially supported LTS distribution, which currently is Ubuntu 16.04.
