Agile Hosting Packages: Ruby On Rails, Django, You Name It
Some extremely exciting news in the world of Agile and Dynamic languages:
- Passenger (mod_rails) released and the popular, mass-hosting provider DreamHost is now offering mod_rails hosting.
- A legendary, rock-solid MediaTemple hosting is now offering Django GridContainers for scalable deployments.
The way I am cut-out, I get in physical pain if I don't have a root access to a server. Considering this, I would much rather get a VPS or (for massive, scalable solution) a combination of Amazon EC2 and RightScale management console, but for industry at large, the availability of mainstream RoR and Django hosting solutions is a big deal... huge deal. And we welcome it wholeheartedly.
These are very exciting times to be in the software business, indeed.
