Thanking Ruby Inside’s November 2010 Sponsors
It's time for us to thank the companies who help keep Ruby Inside going by kindly sponsoring our work in return for a little community love. Luckily, they're all interesting in their own right and have some worthwhile products to check out - no CashForGold or dating sites here!
New Relic — On-demand Application Management
New Relic is a Java and Ruby application performance and reliability monitoring and management service that started life as a Rails-only service (and it's still great for that!). It's truly enterprise-grade software but with the flexibility and accessibility of annual, monthly, or "on demand" pricing, catering to nearly all types of customer. With New Relic you can monitor your apps, find slow transactions, see specific SQL queries, and even run a code-level thread profile. Trivia: New Relic is an anagram of founder "Lew Cirne"'s name!
MinuteDock — High-Power Time Tracking and Invoicing
MinuteDock is a high-powered, fully-featured time tracking service. You can easily log time and also pull together entries into invoices for your clients. As well as merely tracking time, MinuteDock can keep track of your time "goals" and budgets so that you're always aware of where you stand.

Joyent helped another customer, Context Optional, a leading provider of social marketing software and services, scale at Facebook levels and support millions of users within the first months of launch.
