As mentioned in my last post, a surprising number of Unicorn users do not take advantage of one of its best features, no-downtime deploys. Why? There are some common pitfalls that can make this difficult to setup. I want to help address these issues so that more people can make use of this amazing feature.
Unicorn is my favourite application server for Ruby web apps.
I have been running Unicorn in production since October 2009 and it has been faster, more reliable, and more predictable than any of the other options I’ve used.
