It's basically a combination of Apache and NGINX.
You'll have all the familiarity of Apache (.htaccess, etc) with the power of NGINX.
It's like so:
NGINX as static web server front and Apache processing the back end. It's faster than Apache by itself, but slower than standalone NGINX.

NGINX standalone is quite different, and this page explains some differences.

Is is a combination of Nginx and Apache web server?
Reverse-proxy NGINX + Apache is a combination of both, Nginx is well known for its great performance with static files, but its ability to serve dynamic content is not that great since it requires help from additional modules like php-fpm or others alike. Apache can be memory heavy, a combination of both offers the best of both worlds. In this situation nginx would be used to deliver static content while apache is used for backend processing. Its a combination of both power(apache) and speed(nginx).

and what Nginx web server standard alone?
Nginx webserver can be used by itself as a standalone Apache replacement, with a proper optimization both can achive similar results for the end-user.

Some provider put nginx on SSD and apache for normal sata harddisk for data purposes.
this will achieve significant performance without hurting pocket. :)
