At Planet Argon we have deployment specialists because we know the value of having a dedicated practitioner who knows their stuff!

Designing Your Deployment Strategy

Our comprehensive consulting packages feature knowledgeable deployment experts, handling many of the common deployment tasks, as well as advising you on best practices for performance and security. Our experienced team can help you answer many important questions, like

Designing an Effective Deployment Strategy

  • What revision control system should we use?
  • Does our capfile meet our needs?
  • What web server should we use? (nginx/apache/lighttpd)

Auditing and Improving Existing Deployment Strategies

  • Is our current deployment secure?
  • Can this deployment scale once we add more users?

Designing a Practical and Scalable Hosting Solution

  • Should we go with a hosting provider or get our own hardware?
  • How well is our application really performing?

Choosing an Appropriate Ruby Server Solution

  • Which would work best for the project; Unicorn? Mongrel Thin? Phusion Passenger (mod_rails)?
