Load Balancing Rails Apps On Joyent

Another week and another roll of killer features at Cloud 66.

Here is a summary:

First Class Load Balancing Support for Joyent Cloud

We now support fully automated HAProxy deployment and configuration on
Joyent Cloud.

If you decide to deploy you Rails app on AWS through Cloud 66, you can
fire up an Elastic Load Balancer on your AWS and put your web servers
behind it with a click of a button on Cloud 66. However, this feature
was missing when you were running your Rails app on Joyent.

We are pleased to announce that from now on, you can deploy a fully
configured HAProxy on a server at Joyent Cloud that balances the load
between your web servers.

Environment Variables Support

We now fully support environment variables in the Rails apps. This means
you can use ENV in database.yml and other configuration files as well as
through out your code and rake tasks without the need to make any

The environment variables are configurable through the UI as well:
