I’m in the process of developing a Rails application. Currently there
some debate as to the final deployment platform. I’m in favor of using
flavor of linux. However, there are some more “risk averse” co-workers
would prefer to deploy on Windows and, more specifically, IIS. I have
that Ruby is much slower on Windows than Linux, but I have been unable
find any concrete performance comparisons of either Ruby or Ruby On
Windows vs Linux.
Does anyone know of any comparisons that have been done in the past? I
would prefer to not have to create my own benchmarks, if at all
but would rather verify third party benchmarks.
