I'm wrapping up a paper on using Rails in the enterprise for the Fortune 500 company I work for. I've done quite a bit of research and I think I can present a pretty compelling argument, however I'm still looking for examples. If you have personal examples or links to web resources I haven't found, I'd apprecate it. Once the paper is complete it will be available to the public. Speficially I need 1. Examples of enterprise level apps and what hardware and software they are running on with aprox. the number of requests per day. I have Basecamp, RapidReporting, Robot Co-op and Eins.de covered to some extent. 2. Code comparisons between Rails and .NET, Java, Perl or ColdFusion. Preferrably examples of apps that were directly ported to Rails with information like lines of code, development time and/or cost of both development and deployment. Smaller examples of interesting solutions to problems in Ruby on Rails vs. other languages would be great as well. If you have other information you have used to help convince your company to use Rails, I'd appreciate it--even if it's just a link. Thanks--feel free to email me directly "m @ vorwaller .net" as well.
