Topic: Enterprise Applications with Rails?
Recently we've been considering the possibility of developing an Enterprise-ish application with Rails. We are a start-up, so the team is small and we all have some experience with Rails (meaning that the learning curve, and availability of developers are not big issues).
What we are worried about is scalability. We've read a lot of articles claiming that Rails is not ready for the enterprise. We've also read the answers to those articles in which rails fans argue that it is. Honestly, we are not sure who to believe.
What kind of enterprise applications have been developed with Rails? Are there any statistics in terms of hits/hour? What kind of setups are recommended for big applications?
