Deploy Ruby on Rails App (low volume)

I need to deploy a Ruby on Rails application with relatively low expected volume, on a VPS host, from a subversion repository.

## Deliverables

This will require Linux skills (preferably Ubuntu), Capistrano, Mongrel and/or other Ruby on Rails deployment technology.

The application is in the final stages of development, and I would like preliminary versions installed, with updates installed as the app is completed, and afterwards as changes are required. The source code is in a subversion repository accessible from anywhere.

I would like the provider to monitor the app for problems as it is first deployed to users, and then when it is stable, hand the package to me, with instructions. I will be available to fix problems or make adjustments in the app itself.

Here is some further information about the project. This is a very low volume web app, a "one-shot private showing" as it were, for no more than 200 people to be used just a few times each each over a few weeks. After that, it will be even lower volume for perhaps 3-6 months. Therefore, I believe it can be handled by a couple of mongrels in a 256 MB VPS slice. The web server can Apache with mod_rails or nginx. I definitely want to be able to update the code easily, directly from the Subversion repository, so I am assuming it should be done with Capistrano. Please address your experience deploying Rails on multiple servers with these technologies or other relevant ones. Finally, the host I had in mind is Slicehost, which is highly recommended in the Rails community. I am, however, open to other suggestions for VPS hosts. Regards. --David.
