think it's currently $5 a month. I was thinking to use Rails for his
next project. But I wouldn't want costs to exceed more than $20 per
month. I contacted heroku and they said that 1 dyno is free to host
your ruby on rails app and each additional dyno is $30 a month. A
single Heroku dyno provides 512mb ram and 1024mb swap. It has 4
(virtual) CPU cores (Intel Xeon X5550 @ 2.67GHz). 512mb ram doesn't
seem to be much, particularly for memory-intensive processing.
Although, the multiple CPU cores may enhance multi-threading. That
said, this really isn't going to be a memory hog. Now I was curious to
compare these specs with that of a shared hosting environment (where
many different customers share the same resources). For example,
godaddy says this about their shared hosting "Currently there is not a
‘set number’ for CPU resources. Mostly because we have multiple
hardware platforms in the wild. Simply put, if your processes degrade
performance for other customers on the server(s) we will take actions
to protect the other customers." So that's not much of a comparison.
But does anyone have any experience on shared hosting (I know that
most shared hosting environments dont support ruby - but Im sure you
used it for other platfroms like asp.net/php) vs heroku, and if
someone is used to shared hosting with moderate traffic to their site,
would you notice a significant performance downgrade if the site is
moved to heroku on 1 dyno?
