I would like to know everyone's opinion on the best tools for setting up a continuous integration, test and deploy infrastructure for a Ruby on Rails web application API in the Amazon EC2 cloud and any tips or best practices for Jenkins, JMeter, RubyMine, git ...

This is a very broad question. Perhaps you could narrow it down by telling us what research you have already done on this subject and what specific issues arose from that research. – user246 Oct 13 '11 at 13:10

I think ci-infrastructure is what you are looking for. "Getting a fresh Jenkins server set up is kind of a pain and because of that, fewer projects have one than should. This project is designed to make it easy for people to fork and get set up with their very-own Jenkins server in the cloud because CI is awesome. "

You can try Railsonfire (Full disclosure I am one of the founders)

We provide Continuous integration and Deployment for Ruby apps as a Cloud Service. Simple setup in < 2 minutes. If you need any help setting it up write me an email to, a tweet to @Railsonfire or use the olark chat box at the bottom of our site.

If you do want to use your own EC2 instances I would recommend

as it is easy to set up and run. Jenkins is imho bloated, especially if you want to run ruby builds
