Deployment Consultation?

I’m looking for someone who has hands-on experience with the deployment
of a large-scale Rails app, and who can act as a consultant for some
hours or days.

My personal experience extends to configuring servers to do what I want,
successfully deploying stable Rails apps to them via Capistrano, and
keeping everything happy and working in ahared-hosting, VPS, and
dedicated-server environments. But my “journeyman” knowledge and limited
experience may not be sufficient here.

The project in question is very database and memory intensive, with a
potentially huge tree of users. We want to plan our growth path.
Experience in server selection, setup, capistrano deployment,
benchmarking, splitting applications and databases across multiple
servers, performance monitoring, all that stuff. I want an expert with
real-world experience in these areas to cut through the fog.

If you’re able and interested, or can refer me to anyone who might be,
please email me: anejr at alevans dot com.

I may be able to assist. See for recent
history etc. If you have questions please feel free to email me. My
availability is somewhat constrained due to ongoing commitments
however I do have some hours/wk available for new projects. I
definitely have recent real-world experience in cutting through the
relevant fog.

If you’d like to schedule a call to discuss the specifics of your
deployment and anticipated growth/scaling requirements let me know.
