Nothing more reliable at the moment than mongrel.
Rails is not PHP, nor .Net. You need a minimum of one mongrel instance
application, almost always 2 per app, and sometimes more. Deployment on
Windows requires (currently) Mongrel, a load balancer like Pen or
Apache 2.2+ mod_proxy_balance, a rewriter like ISAPI_Rewrite and an
IIS reverse proxy
like the plugin I wrote.
It sounds strange, but that’s how it works. You have lots of ports on a
server, you can easily host lots of apps.
I support lots of people on Windows servers, but I still recommend that
serve your apps from Linux. It will perform much better if you expect
I have articles on my site (http://www.napcs.com/) that give you various
paths for setting things up, and I am contributing to the deployment
well. Not sure when that will be out though.
You, or anyone else, can feel free to contact me regarding this issue.
