I would like to put together a hosting setup for a rails site. I am
expecting 300,000 page views a day ranging from static content to more
db intense inventory results pages. I am planning 1 MySQL server, 2
Mongrel App servers, and 1 Apache web server (to front my setup).
My questions are:
- Which OS’s are recommended? I was thinking FreeBSD or a linux
- What kind of hardware would be best for my setup? Beefy web and db
servers and lighter mongrels etc…?
Grateful for any help.
