I’m pleased to report that my AssetsGraphed Ruby on Rails application has been running continuously for over two hundred days now, as the screenshot below taken from my installation of monit shows. Okay, so AssetsGraphed isn’t exactly getting hammered like Facebook, but this level of reliability supports my decision to choose Rails Machine for hosting my Rails applications. Their choice of running Xen-based VPSs on Linux would appear to be a wise one and I know that 37signals themselves are moving in this direction.
The next milestone will be a year’s continuous uptime—let’s hope that posting this isn’t the kiss of death that takes AssetsGraphed offline! Happy New Year everyone.
