Pool Party

EC2, Uncategorized No Comments »

PoolParty is a tool which, according to their web site, helps you deploy, monitor and load-balance Amazon EC2 instances.

The RailsConf ’08 presentation on PoolParty is available on Scribd for those looking to take the plunge (sorry, couldn’t resist !)

Deploying to EC2 with Rubber

EC2 No Comments »

Here’s another new deployment option which might interest those of you deploying to Amazon’s EC2 service. Rubber lets you deploy to one or more machines in the cloud and add more as you need them (with a role-based model similar to Capistrano’s).

They have a quickstart if you want to get a feel for how you’d use it before picking it up.

Fuzed and EC2

EC2 2 Comments »

I came across a novel deployment option this week. Fuzed lets you run your Rails application behind YAWS, a high-performance Erlang web server. At least that’s what I think it does. The description over at Github is slightly different in that it doesn’t specifically mention YAWS but it may still be in there.

Scott Chacon has a good video over at Join the Conversation showing Fuzed in action in conjunction with Amazon EC2 – well worth a watch. The scripts he uses in the video are up on github.
