Ruby on Rails (ROR) is Fidenz’s primary framework for web application development. Years of expertise enables Fidenz to deliver successful projects via ROR. Engineers use a fine set of gems to build applications that provide reliability, scalability, easy maintenance, and delivery in complex web solutions.
Fidenz has done many ROR based integration using open standards. We have shared our knowledge of ROR and other platforms by contributing for many open source projects. Our expertise enables us to integrate ROR based custom applications with many different services, to deliver right functionality for products. Over the years, we have deployed our applications to many different hosting environments reliably.
As part of the partnership with SpreeCommerce, we have done some open source integration that gave us the opportunity to understand the architecture of Wombat, SpreeCommerce, and other third party platforms.

Integration module to connect Moodel (open source learning platform ) with any Admin Portal or CMS which allows User Management, Single Sign On (SSO) and synchronization of course details between Moodle and external application.
For platforms we develop, our choice of object storage is AWS S3. We have been using S3 for few years and and we seamlessly integrate S3 for secure and reliable object storage.
We have involved with delivering complex video based online solutions and we have worked extensively with video content and delivery of content. Our prefered choice has been AWS Video Transcoder which provide wide range of capabilities to produce and deliver video content for range of devices with different capabilities using formats such as HLS / RTSP.
Most web portals have some sort of a payment gateway integration and we have great experience in working multiple different payment gateways. Considering the volume, average transaction size and type of targeted customers, we work with our clients to decide on the most suitable payment gateway for their business. We have integrated multiple different offering from various different payment gateway providers such as PayPal, Authorize.net and FirstData to give the best RoI for our clients.
Solutions we have developed using Ruby on Rails have different traffic, storage, processing and memory requirements. To handle these different requirements in a cost effective and reliable manner we have worked with multiple different hosting service providers. We recommend hosting systems in AWS EC2 as that provides many other services within the ecosystem itself. But depending on specific requirements such as simplicity of management and pricing, we host systems on Heroku and DigitalOcean as well.
Our prefered hosting server environments for Ruby on Rails application hosting has been Linux based but we do host on multiple flavours of Linux such as Ubuntu, CentOS and AmazonLinux. We recommend using either Apache or Nginx web servers with Passenger for best performance and we used Nginx as reverse proxy with Unicorn
