Deployment Infrastructure Stack

Hello Railers,

Getting on application servers, what do you guys use as your
infrastructure
backend?

I’ve read a lot about it, seems like apache + passanger is the easiest
to
go, right now.

What about nginx + passenger?

What about clusters? Does all this options supports clusters?

Where does proxy servers come into play?

Those are the two best options unless you want to use JRuby.

Or you could try Heroku. It isn’t suitable for everyone, but if it is
suitable for you it’s lovely!

I’m not sure how clustering works with Passenger. Heroku is
cloud-based, so no problem.

You don’t need them with Passenger.

I don’t get why being cloud-based I wouldn’t need to have a cluster of
web
servers. Could you clarify?

Because the cloud is your cluster of servers. You don’t deal with that
problem, they do.
