Rails vs Vert.x: What are the differences?

Rails is a web-application framework that includes everything needed to create database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. On the other hand, Vert.x is detailed as "A tool-kit for building reactive applications on the JVM". It is event driven and non blocking application framework. This means your app can handle a lot of concurrency using a small number of kernel threads. It lets your app scale with minimal hardware.
