Hi again everyone!
OK making tons of progress learning here and getting pretty close to
deployment and I need a some more guidance. I’ve been testing with
Nginx as the proxy to my mongrel cluster but I also have a hardware load
balancer. Now it seems to me that just using the load balancer to
balance among all the mongrels in several clusters across several
machines would be simple and work great. But if I want something other
than Mongrel to serve up html, etc. or if I want to add in PHP support
then I probably need to stick with something like Nginx or Apache as the
proxy load balancer, correct?
Just to give a bit bigger picture, I have a couple of machines on which
I’m going to be running a couple of VMs on with Xen so I’ll have at
least 4 VMs and lots of mongrels too. Plus a development server with
subversion and Capistrano to manage all the deployment.
As always, thanks again!
