Is Ruby On Rails ready for the Enterprise? [closed]


Is anyone out there using RoR for large scale, business critical enterprise applications?

Are there any other lightweight web-frameworks based on dynamic languages that people are using for these types of apps?

If you're not using these types of application frameworks what's stopping you? Is it simply the inertia associated with any large IT organization. Are the speed and stability issues of these frameworks enough of a problem that they offset the improvements in development cycle times?

Yes, we have several large clients using our Rails-based (intranet and cloud) apps. The stability has been amazing. For example, two come to mind as the ones with the most traffic and complexity: one of our apps has been in production for 2.5 years with 0 issues and another 6 months now, also with 0 issues.

I would definitely read this case study of Ruby On Rails

In this article, I'll walk you through the way we're using Ruby on Rails to build the site. You'll see the core features we're using, as well as the primary plugins that we depend on every day. Most of our technology isn't really earth shattering, but I hope to give you a glimpse inside our day to day operations. My aim is to give you a broad overview of how the team works, the technology we trust in the production environment, the tools we use, and the Rails frameworks that are most important to us. I'll link to a resource rather than going into great detail in any single area, but if you want to know more about any part of it, leave a comment.

We're current using Rails for a site with over 5 million uniques/month with great success, so if enterprise = scale then yes.

This video can help you solving your question :)
