Let’s start exploring at the bottom of the stack, with our Rails (or other) application code, and work our way up. I’ll give names of various libraries and servers along the way, but this is not a tutorial on setting up Mongrel with Nginx, or any other configuration. This article is about understanding Ruby web application deployment in general, so you are better informed and more able to evaluate new technologies and participate in conversations.

High level intro to application servers, Rack, and reverse proxies in web programming.
