Ruby on Rails with a single MySQL server is one of the fastest ways to create and deploy a world-class web app. Scaling that app is another story. Since you can add web capacity easily, the ability to scale a modern Ruby on Rails application rests solely upon the scalability of the database. Single instance, scale-up databases simply don't make sense in a Web 2.0 world. And non-relational databases require you to sacrifice too much - transactional integrity, consistency, durability, and security.

In this webinar, learn the results of a performance benchmark that compared the performance of Ruby on Rails using MySQL, and Clustrix, a scale-out SQL database engineered for the cloud. You will learn:

  • How database performance (measured as transactions per second) is impacted by increasing concurrency (measured by total threads)
  • How to quickly and easily achieve breakthrough scalability for Ruby with MySQL
  • How to reduce the costs associated with scaling Rails
  • How to retain all the powerful functionality of Rails, even while scaling linearly

As a special bonus, all Webinar attendees will receive the white paper, "Ruby on Rails Database Benchmark."
