First, Ryan Tomayko discusses a solution he uses in production, which seems to be more a partitioned/federated approach.

He also points to an excellent proof-of-concept how-to for an in-Rails load balancing solution.

Pretty nice.

As a side note, a person with experience in more mature platforms could offer a lot by focusing in on Rails for a while…
