Any high traffic sites using RoR?
I'm wondering if there are any high traffic (~5m page views a month) sites out there written in Ruby on Rails. Everything I've seen about Rails is great and seems perfect on a small scale application. I'm curious to see where the framework has gotten in moving into the enterprise market. Are there any published metrics on this?
I'm pretty sure
www.qype.com is made in RoR.
There are several, actually.
basecamphq.com is the application that Rails was originally extracted from, which is pretty high traffic.
Also, The Robot Coop (running sites like 43things.com and 43places.com) reportedly serves more than 2 million Rails-built pages per day.
We're in charge of running eins.de on Rails for a customer here in Germany, which serves 1.5 million pages a day.
So, yes, it does scale
Here's a recent post from the TextDrive founder about scaling twitter.com to serve 4000 requests per second on certain sub-pages:
And here's a post from yours truly regarding the scaling process of eins.de from about a year ago:
Hope this helps.
http://mog.com/ which handles not only web pageview requests but also a Mac/Windows app that reports every song you listen to on iTunes/winamp to its server, kind of like last.fm.
Yes rails can scale. No I don't like the word enterprise.
5 000 000 page views isn't really high traffic IMO.
and yes... rails can handle that more than easily.
