Well, mongrel and mogrel_cluster are not mutually exclusive. If you
are using mongrel, you will most definitely want to use
mongrel_cluster (really all it does it allow you to work with multiple
instances of mongrel easily. So it is just a wrapper that simplifies
use of mongrel in a production situation).
I personally have no clue which is faster. But the ease of setup and
use of mongrel with mongrel_cluster is a tremendous advantage …
added with the ease of configuring lighty I would be tempted to go
that route. But as lighty has suffered some stagnation recently it
would concern me in the long term. People on the mongrel mailing list
have recently mentioned apache 2.2 and mod_proxy so I need to try that
