Ruby in Production: Lessons Learned — Medium
Based on the pain we've had trying to bring our Rails services up to the quality levels required, this looks pretty accurate in many respects. I'd augment this advice by saying: avoid RVM; use Docker.

How We Moved Our API From Ruby to Go and Saved Our Sanity
Parse on their ditching-Rails story. I haven't heard a nice thing about Ruby or Rails as an operational, production-quality platform in a long time :(

The Large Hadron Migrator is a tool to perform live database migrations in a Rails app without locking.

The basic idea is to perform the migration online while the system is live, without locking the table. In contrast to OAK and the facebook tool, we only use a copy table and triggers. The Large Hadron is a test driven Ruby solution which can easily be dropped into an ActiveRecord or DataMapper migration. It presumes a single auto incremented numerical primary key called id as per the Rails convention. Unlike the twitter solution, it does not require the presence of an indexed updated_at column.
