Thank you very much for the replys, all util information for my
As Chris noted:
- My first post need to be fine tuned. Until next monday
I will post the answers for the three questions (actual hardware, app
and access peak/average relation).
- I`m most interested in knowing whether or not a Rails
current ASP application (and the new app that will be developted) will
capable of running
on the same hardware and infrastructure as my
existing setup with
approximately the same resource requirements and
For now, I can make only a little fine tune: I said one milion
but it is not exact, because 50% of the pageviews are consumed by the
forum, and the new rails site won`t include the forum, rather we will
use Vbulletin or Jive SBS. Also, the rest 50% pageviews are consumed
by static content.
Regarding hardware, I already use slicehost for some projects and like
I`am thinking about to use 2GB slice:
Of course, it is just a possibility, since this decision depends
strongly of the
research I`m doing now (including your replys).

Just to fine tune your original question, you're probably most
interested in knowing whether or not a Rails equivalent to your current
ASP application will be capable of running on the same hardware and
infrastructure as your existing setup with approximately the same
resource requirements and performance.Â If I were sitting down with you
as a consultant, I would immediately ask the following questions:
Without that information, you're going to get a lot of answers about
how Rails scales well without really knowing whether or not Rails will
scale well for you.Â However, if we assume a peak load somewhere
between 10x and 20x, you're talking about something on the order of a
few hundred requests per minute which is not such a high demand to
place on a basic Rails app running on a single recent model server,
especially if you're able to implement some form of caching.
- What does your current hardware and infrastructure solution
look like?Â (i.e. number and type of servers, where hosted, etc.)
- What does your application look like?Â (i.e. mostly static
content, dynamic application functionality, little/lots of Ajax,
- How much higher is your peak load than your average load?Â
(i.e. 10x, 50x, 100x, etc.)
