Rolling out new updates for Rails Boxcar

Posted by Thu, 29 Jan 2009 04:30:00 GMT

Alex, Director of Deployment Services, has been hard at work helping us get our new suite of hosting plans out for Rails Boxcar, a deployment environment that we’ve designed to help you get your Ruby on Rails applications running as painless and quickly as possible. With this new announcement, we’ve rebuilt the Boxcar image based on the feedback of our existing customers.

Additionally, we’ve been looking over some of early results from the Ruby on Rails Hosting in 2009 Survey that we’ve been running the past few weeks, which has further boosted our confidence that we’re on the right track with this big change.

What are some of the changes?

This means that with a Rails Boxcar, you can now get a pre-configured deployment environment using some of the most efficient platforms for hosting your Ruby on Rails applications. (REE has shown to increase performance by 33% in some cases)

We’re really excited about this new setup and would like to invite you all to check out our new plans and send us any questions that you might have.

Back in Portland... back to San Francisco

Posted by Sun, 20 Nov 2005 15:33:00 GMT

Last night, Jeremy and I got back to Portland after an intense but enjoyable rails consulting project. I’m flying back down there either later tonight or tomorrow AM to work for a few more days on-site.

Yesterday, we got to meet Deirdre Saoirse Moen and Steve Enzer on Haight St at a Wifi-friendly Coffee shop. It was nice to get to meet some bayarea rubyists. :-)

I’ll post some photos on our PLANET ARGON flickr page later…but I must go run a few errands first and we have another meeting with one of our other clients this afternoon. (then I fly back…)

I’m looking forward to sharing some of things that we’ve been learning over the past few days. I can’t discuss much about the clients business (at the moment), but we know from first hand that Ruby on Rails is being used in a fairly large production facility. At any moment 30-40 people are using a few internal Rails applications to manage the production of their business. It’s quite impressive. I’m talking… Barcodes <=> Rails. :-)
