Rails or ASP.NET

ASP.net, easy. Compiled code is always faster than interpreted code.

would be BETTER to use ROR or ASP.NET?
Which would give better performance on same hardware?

Yeah but who is actually going to do the streaming from either of those?

That unto itself is slow.

@Rick:

Interesting… thought you gave up .Net for Rails :slight_smile:

(kidding of course).

@Sandeep

I don’t know what would be faster but that’s because I don’t know what faster means. If you are just serving up videos from a database or file system, I would imagine that both ASP.Net and Rails would perform equivalently, as you’d probably use both languages to write static (cached) pages instead of always querying the db.

I’d try both, and see what you get :slight_smile:

Now if you’re trying to encode video, that’s a bit different.

You gonna be surprised but there is Ruby.NET :slight_smile:

I did. Apparently developer productivity and fun won out :slight_smile:

Also, I believe you'll be more limited by bandwidth for streaming
movies anyway.

Right on! :slight_smile:
