Hello Rails Community,
In the spirit of being agile with your Rails deployment and scaling,
can you recommend a process for moving your application to another
hosting provider where a new IP address will be assigned?
A wep app such as a Radiant CMS may be ok with a short downtime in the
early morning, but a paid SAS service where users call a Restful API
would not enjoy any downtime during a migration.
I’m in search of a solution that provides:
- Little to no downtime to customers.
- Considers Internet DNS propogation time for finding the new host
- Considers database migration.
I’m not looking for a step-by-step, command line answer, only a higher-
level point of view that can point me in the proper direction.
