While it’s easy to get started developing applications using Ruby on Rails, the hard part is (as with most technologies) how to put it into production? There are a lot of options like Mongrel, nginx, Apache and JRuby, all of them difficult to evaulate without deeper knowledge of Rails and your application’s scaling needs. We will look at the available options to get a clearer picture how each setup is in different situations, and how you can utilize Capistrano for an easy deployment process in those situations. Simple as well as more complex setups will be discussed. We’ll try to include your problems as well as your experiences to discuss specific issues with deployment and scalability.
