I run a RoR/MySQL/Apache stack currently on a slicehost slice. We are coming out of beta within the next few weeks and im concerned with the scalability of the slice, in case we get big. Ive been looking at offerings like linode,Storm on demand,EC2 and rackspace.
I don't quite understand how the DB would work "in the cloud" Would it at all? or do i put that elsewhere? I've looked around a bit and couldn't get a clear picture in mind the best route to take.
