Heroku - Thin vs Unicorn>

From: Aron
Sent on: Thursday, June 21, 2012 12:41 AM
Hi everyone:

Does anyone have a strong point of view on thin vs Unicorn on Heroku Cedar?

I haven't been able to find any benchmarking that is recent (e.g. within the last 6-12 months).  Seems like Thin may be marginally faster but Unicorn is better at multithreading.  I've read quite a number of articles that describe the merits of the systems individually but strangely haven't found any good / recent compare and contrast type articles.

Our application is a typical consumer HTML5/web app.  In general we are pursuing the philosophy of trying to keep the environment as simple as possible and letting Heroku do the hard work.

thanks in advace!
