5 years after the initial release of Ruby on Rails, multiple large and
successful websites are powered by this innovative and still relatively
young framework. But word is still on the street that Ruby on Rails does
not scale. Is this true?
In this session we will show you various
techniques for scaling your Rails application. We will discuss web server
scaling techniques, database scaling techniques, network scaling
techniques, and… a 3D surprise involving Rails core team members!

Ninh Bui is the co-founder and CEO of Phusion, a company that specializes in offering top of the line IT products and services to high profile clients.
Prior to founding Phusion, he has had the pleasure of working with companies such as PricewaterhouseCoopers and Unilever as an IT consultant and/or software engineer. Even though he is a computer science student at the time of this writing, it was during this period in time that he came to truly understand the importance of putting computer science into practice. Since all the people at Phusion share this thought, Phusion was lovingly dubbed the “The Computer Science Company”.
On a technical note, Ninh is well versed in a variety of computer languages and paradigms and possesses an (almost) uncontrollable hunger for knowledge. In particular, his current interests lie at the domain of Formal Methods, where the emphasis is put on software verification through mathematical specifications.
In his spare time, he enjoys hanging out with family and friends and in particular, going to rock and electro concerts of bands such as The Arctic Monkeys and Daft Punk. Also, he enjoys playing StarCraft with Hongli, and is looking forward to playing against David at Railsconf.
Hongli Lai is the co-founder and CTO of Phusion, a company that specializes in offering top of the line IT products and services to high profile clients.
Prior to founding Phusion, he has had the pleasure of working on a myriad of open source products such as Ruby, Ruby on Rails, and Autopackage, where it’s perhaps worth mentioning that the latter is being used by the Dutch Tax Department.
From his computer science study and work, Hongli has also become well versed in a variety of computer languages and paradigms and also possesses an (almost) uncontrollable hunger for knowledge. In particular, his current interests lie in the domain of Software Engineering, where the emphasis is put on software architecture.
