Reliably Deploying Rails Applications

By Ben Dixon

Mastering Rails software deployment

This booklet will convey you from begin to end how to:

Setup a VPS from Scratch
Setup extra servers in minutes
Use Capistrano three to installation quick and reliably
Automate dull upkeep tasks

If you've bought purposes on Heroku that are costing you a fortune, this can give you the instruments you must circulate them onto a VPS. This comprises working a number of Rails functions on a unmarried VPS - nice for small facet projects.

If you're already working your app on a VPS however the set up technique is flaky - it occasionally doesn't restart or lots the inaccurate model of the code - this ebook presents a template for making the method difficulty free.
Section 1: Chef

How to automate provisioning new servers with chef. by means of the tip you'll have the ability to get a brand new server up and able to use inside minutes.

Many commonplace Rails process configurations are supported out of the field with the instance code (MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB and Redis). For the rest, exact directions for developing your personal customized configurations are supplied.

The goal of this part is to construct a re-usable blueprint you should use everytime you have to setup a brand new VPS.

Particular realization is paid to constructing 0 downtime deployment - crucial if you're iterating swiftly and wish to install numerous instances in line with day. This encompasses a part on universal gotchas akin to failing to reload the gemfile on deployment in addition to an in depth consultant to troubleshooting whilst it is going wrong.

I've spent 1000s of hours combing via weblog posts, documentation and tweaking config documents. This has acquired me to the level the place deploying to a VPS is as effortless as - actually frequently more uncomplicated than - deploying to Heroku. to be able to do an analogous, this publication will prevent loads of time.
Current of completion & Feedback

The first part - provisioning a server with chef - is whole, together with directions for PostgreSQL, MySQL and MongoDB. This features a "Five minute VPS" quickstart part for the impatient.

The moment part - deploying with Capistrano three - can be on hand and contains the entire details had to get 0 downtime deployments operating with Rails 3/4 and Unicorn. in addition to distinctive pattern code, it comprises whole directions for deploying Sidekiq staff, a close part on Configuring 0 Downtime deployment and directions for configuring NGinx Virtualhosts and SSL

Over the following few months I'll be including extra chapters which move into aspect on backups and database administration in addition to enhancing the ebook in accordance with the suggestions I've acquired up to now (please maintain this coming!). I'll additionally proceed so as to add extra chapters as and while I stumble upon new information and tricks.

Any suggestions on content material, constitution or corrections very gratefully got, you may get me on twitter (@talkingquickly) or utilizing the leanpub talk about button below.

Beowulf Cluster Computing with Linux (Scientific and Engineering Computation)

By William Gropp

Use of Beowulf clusters (collections of off-the-shelf commodity desktops programmed to behave in live performance, leading to supercomputer functionality at a fragment of the price) has unfold everywhere within the computational technological know-how neighborhood. Many program teams are assembling and working their very own "private supercomputers" instead of counting on centralized computing facilities. Such clusters are utilized in weather modeling, computational biology, astrophysics, and fabrics technological know-how, in addition to non-traditional components reminiscent of monetary modeling and leisure. a lot of this new reputation will be attributed to the expansion of the open-source movement.The moment variation of Beowulf Cluster Computing with Linux has been thoroughly up-to-date; all 3 stand-alone sections have very important new fabric. The introductory fabric within the first half now incorporates a new bankruptcy giving an outline of the publication and heritage on cluster-specific concerns, together with why and the way to decide on a cluster, in addition to new chapters on cluster initialization structures (including ROCKS and OSCAR) and on community setup and tuning. the knowledge on parallel programming within the moment half now contains chapters on easy parallel programming and to be had libraries and courses for clusters. The 3rd and biggest a part of the e-book, which describes software program infrastructure and instruments for dealing with cluster assets, has new fabric on cluster administration and at the Scyld system.

Technology for Modelling: Electrical Analogies, Engineering Practice, and the Development of Analogue Computing (History of Computing)

By Charles Care

Historians have diversified perspectives at the center id of analogue computing. a few painting the expertise exclusively as a precursor to electronic computing, while others pressure that analogue purposes existed good after 1940. Even inside modern assets, there's a spectrum of knowing round what constitutes analogue computing. to appreciate the connection among analogue and electronic computing, and what this implies for clients this day, the heritage needs to ponder how the know-how is used.

Technology for Modelling investigates the applied sciences, the strategies, and the functions of analogue computing. The textual content asserts that analogue computing needs to be regarded as not only a computing expertise, but in addition as a modelling know-how, demonstrating how the historical past of analogue computing might be understood by way of the parallel issues of calculation and modelling. The e-book additionally incorporates a variety of targeted case stories of the technology's use and application.

Topics and lines: discusses the that means of analogue computing and its importance in heritage, and describes the most variations among analogue and electronic computing; offers a chronology of analogue computing, established upon the 2 significant strands of calculation and modeling; examines the broader dating among computing and modelling, and discusses how the topic of modelling matches in the historical past of analogue computing; describes how the background of analogue computing advanced via a few levels of use; offers illustrative case reviews on analogue modelling in educational study, oil reservoir modelling, aeronautical layout, and meteorology.

Open: How Compaq Ended IBM's PC Domination and Helped Invent Modern Computing

By Rod Canion

The tale of Compaq is recognized: 3 ex-Texas tools managers based Compaq with modest enterprise investment. simply 4 years later, Compaq used to be at the Fortune 500 record, and, years after that, that they had handed $1 billion in annual profit. No corporation had ever accomplished those milestones so rapidly.

But few understand the tale at the back of the tale. In 1982, while Compaq was once based, there has been no software program standardization, so each model of non-public desktop required its personal specific software software program. simply 8 years later, compatibility with the open laptop usual had develop into ubiquitous, and it has persevered to be for over decades.

This didn’t occur unintentionally. Cofounder after which CEO Rod Canion and his group made a chain of dicy and bold decisions—often dealing with feedback and incredulity—that allowed the open computing device ordinary market to thrive and the extraordinary advantages of open computing to be realized.

A never-before-published insider account of Compaq’s notable options and judgements, Open presents precious classes in management in occasions of hindrance, administration decision-making less than the strain of notable development, and the ability of a distinct, pervasive culture.

Open tells the impressive tale of Compaq’s meteoric upward push from humble beginnings to turn into the computer chief in precisely over a decade. alongside the best way, Compaq helped switch the face of computing whereas constructing the basis for today’s international of drugs and shrewdpermanent phones.
