Topic: how to use two computers to serve the rails website
Our company has one server with growing traffic. I have created a slave replication server, and i can use the backup server (the slave) to write to the master database, but read from the slave.
What i would like to do though, is use the backup (or another) server to help with the load on the main server, especially durring high traffic times. Our computer does a lot of calculations, disc access is high, so bandwidth is not the limitation.
I would also like the ability to do it with one ip address, but i can get another if it allows a better alternative or solution.
Anyone have any good tips for me?
