JRuby on Rails Host recommendations?

Hello,

I’ve been working on a JRuby on Rails app for the last several months
and am
planning to go live in the next couple weeks. I’m looking for a good
hosting company for my app. Does anyone have any experience with
hosting a
JRuby on Rails app with a hosting company? Ideally, I’d like to be
paying
$10-$15/month, or up to $20/month if that’s what I need to pay to get
decent
hosting. I have no experience with the various Java servers (Tomcat,
Jetty,
JBoss, Glassfish), so right now I have no preference. Tomcat hosting
seems
to be the most affordable, though. I’d like the hosting package to
include
my own private JVM.

Anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks,
Myron

I am not too familiar with Java-only solutions, however Slicehost seems
to
be within your budget for your own VPS. The only caveat there is the
setup,
deployment, and management is up to you 100%. Let me know what you
ultimately go with as I would be interested as well.

Thanks for the suggestion–Slicehost definitely looks interesting. That
said, server setup and configuration is not my strong suit–I have
virtually
no Linux experience. I’m sure Slicehost would be an educational
experience
(in a good way), but I’m not sure I want to invest the time in that now.

Anyone else got any suggestions?

My brother ended up going with Slicehost because non-VPS options were
too restrictive for Ruby stuff, JRuby or otherwise. As far as I know
he’s pretty happy with it so far.

The press release just came out today but Morph Labs now offers Java
support. I don’t know the extent as I only quickly read the press
release and remembered this thread.

http://www.mor.ph/

“Java goes out of Beta. About a month ago, we announced Morph AppSpace
for Java and Grails in limited developer preview. We’re very excited
to tell you that this major feature is now publicly available. The
Java and Grails community can now take advantage of our fully managed
deployment, delivery and management system to side-step time-consuming
challenges such as hosting setups and deployment tasks.”

I think the basic hosting is around $1/day. The Rails demo running on
Morph that was given at the most recent BarCamp Orlando was pretty
impressive and the prices seem reasonable for the many cool services
they offer.

Good luck!

We’re a partner of Morph and have had great success with Rails
applications.
We are looking into their Java offerings as we speak. If you go with
that
let me know.
