Ninefold

Ninefold relies on Elasticsearch to store and present our customers 'deployed apps' logs via the Ninefold portal and CLI.

Even though our logging system is considered to be a core piece of our hosting platform and even though we have very strict internal demands for keeping the system available and healthy, we still don't have to do much to keep Elasticsearch up and running. While it's incredibly configurable, we found that we haven't had to deviate much from their sane defaults...

We have updated all environments to Bundler 1.6.3.

What does this mean to you?

Faster deployments. As part of 1.6, they have rewritten the resolver to avoid recursion. The bundler team is reporting up to 10x performance improvements when resolving Gemfiles.

There’s an expression that to a person with only a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Over time, familiarity makes most problems look like nails to which you simply apply your hammer.

We are happy to announce that you can now use Travis CI to automatically deploy your application after a successful build.

Setting up Travis and Ninefold is simple, just run:

Eileen Uchitelle, a Lead Developer at Phishme, gave a very interesting and informative talk at Ruby Nation this past weekend. The talk focused on how problems can arise when developers make the assumption that Active Record knows best instead of understanding how its methods translate into MySQL.

During her presentation Eileen explored an example for each CRUD function and demonstrated how the usage of certain methods could result in MySQL timeouts, memory leaks or slow queries.

Sean Schofield of Spree Commerce gave an enlightening talk on how startups should view Venture Capital funding as a game not entirely different to Game of Thrones. While initially you may assume that is pretty extreme, when you equate winning with survival, it is an apt reference and does offer many parallels.

Docker is truly game changing when it comes to deploying and running online applications. We are very excited to announce Docker 1.0.0 is now available on Ninefold!

We aim to make microservices more easily available for our Rails and virtual server customers by allowing them to utilize Docker containers running on the same network. We have made the process of getting a machine up and running with Docker super simple. You can get started in a matter of minutes.

Sandi Metz did a very interesting presentation the other day at the Ruby On Ales conference in Bend, Oregon. Sandi is well known for her (highly recommended) book Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby and her concepts provide a strong foundation for understanding objects, not just in Ruby but in other OO languages. At Ruby On Ales Sandi shed light on some principles to guide engineers of all levels in creating good code. And we think that is pretty awesome.

Build for Rails. Easy app deployment. Better app performance.
Introduction
What we do

Putting your Rails app online should be easy. Putting your Rails app online should be easy. No incantations, no Stack Overflowing and no Yak shaving. You shouldn’t have to code for the platform and you shouldn’t have to pay a premium for easy deployment.

That’s what we’re working on.

Our platform enables you to deploy quickly and provides your end users with consistently awesome performance.

Ninefold is also backed by Macquarie Telecom, a publicly listed company that guarantees the resources we need to make your app deploying more awesome.

Community

We’re working on helping the Rails developers of today and tomorrow by providing them with much needed, resources, such as beer and pizza.

But when we’re not making you plump, we’re hosting your Gems, devs from our team run hack nights, speak at Rails and dev events and sometimes we just hand around, you know…being human and stuff.
