What is Fullstaq Ruby?

Fullstaq Ruby is an MRI-based Ruby distribution that's optimized for server production use cases. It is compiled with the Jemalloc and malloc_trim patches, allowing lower memory usage and higher performance.

We supply binaries (DEBs, RPMs) so that you don't have to compile Ruby from source, and so that you can easily keep Ruby security-patched.

50% less memory (yes, really)

Andrey Novikov from Evil Martians reviewed and tested Fullstaq Ruby on multiple workloads, including web apps and background workers. The verdict: drastic reduction in memory usage, as well as a slight performance improvement.

A open source project to count on

Fullstaq Ruby is fully open source. We're committed to safeguard the long-term viability and health of this project. How? By closely collaborating with the community, and by making it maintainable by anyone.

More improvements on the way

Fullstaq Ruby is in beta: it is a work-in-progress. Further memory reduction optimizations are possible. Better system integration is planned. And much more.
