  • "Ruby on Rails doesn't scale..." I guess that's implicitly mentioned as the kind of headline FUD some managers follow.
    • Perhaps it's more fair to say that we (the BBC) have suffered some scalability issues with it.

      • I attempted to pull my own teeth out once and made a right hash of it.. Ruby and Rails scale very well. The only issue is that it does require being on the ball regarding the latest tools and techniques, and to forget about how you'd scale a different language or framework - because the techniques mostly won't cross.

          That's a good point. Which shiny new just-written web server does the Rails core team recommend this month?

          ... and to forget about how you'd scale a different language or framework - because the techniques mostly won't cross.

          Rails doesn't have a shared-nothing architecture? Really?

      • Or even more fair, even accurate, to say that Rails didn't have anything to do with this particular case since it was an immature prototype that wasn't meant for production, much less being linked from the BBC front page.

        And I don't know how a shared nothing architecture in any language "doesn't scale" (all the way up to the shared resource -- usually the db).
