Deployment Patterns in the Ruby on Rails World

  • submit to reddit

@AjeyGore and I present deployment patterns and paradigms that we've observed and influenced while consulting and enabling numerous clients.

The ones at the beginning are ideal for smaller scale applications that do not typically need to scale fast.
We also go on to talk on more advanced patterns by using system-level packing tools that can enable an application to scale very rapidly with the help of Chef or Puppet.

We presented this at DevOpsDays Bangalore 2011.
