European equivalent of RailsMachine / EngineYard?

We’re looking for a highly reliable rails host where we can easily
spread our app across multiple machines for redundancy. Something like
EngineYard sounds ideal, but most if not all of the site users will be
based in the UK. I’d like to avoid the transatlantic lag if
possible…
Does anyone know of a european equivalent of the big rails hosts? I’m
struggling to find anything except shared servers over here…

Hello,

We’re looking for a highly reliable rails host where we can easily
spread our app across multiple machines for redundancy. Something
like
EngineYard sounds ideal, but most if not all of the site users will be
based in the UK. I’d like to avoid the transatlantic lag if
possible…

I’m based in the UK and have my site at Rails Machine. I’ve never
noticed any lag, either interacting with the subversion repository on
my RM box or as a user clicking around my site.

I appreciate the problem you’re trying to avoid but it may not be as
bad as you think.

Regards,
Andy S.

Hey Jon–

We have a number of customers in the UK that are happily using

Engine Y. to host their sites. I don’t think the lag is as bad
these days as you might think. Also eventually we will have a data
center in Europe. And we already have a reseller in Germany. Anyway
please contact me offlist if you would like to talk some more and I
could set you up with a test account so you could see for yourself if
the transatlantic lag is too much for you.
