Finally, a break from a hectic week at the office. I spent most of my week working on some servers and outlining some of our plans for where we will be taking the hosting side of our business during the first quarter of 2007. Let’s just say, we’re a few months behind schedule and it’s time to get onboard before the train takes off. ;-)
Have a safe and exciting New Years!
Yesterday, those of us who were still at the PLANET ARGON office (and not already on vacation) took the afternoon off yesterday to have a few drinks to kick-start the holiday season.
I’m getting ready to head up to Seattle for the holiday weekend. I hope that you all have a safe and fun holiday season!
Where have I been the past month?
It’s almost the end of year and things have been extremely busy at PLANET ARGON. You might notice some new names on our site as we have been doing some growing. I’ll announce those individuals at a later point in time… but a quick peak at our Flickr page should give you some insight. :-)
Earlier today, we announced that we’ll be having a special deal on our Rails hosting from now until the end of 2006.
If you’re looking for a good platform to host your Rails applications, we currently recommend the following configuration.
- Mongrel Cluster (at least 2 mongrel instances)
- Pound as a load balancer/proxy (Nginx is also available for all customers!)
- Capistrano for automatic deployment
We’re looking forward to 2007! In two months, it’ll be two full years since we first announced support for Rails hosting!
1 For the record, H.O.T was a silly project from several years ago… check our our holiday ep!
