    Sorry to hear. I'd say, never "bundle install" in the init script. If using docker, make "bundle install" an intermediate container. If you have your own servers, try network FS sharing your deps (and see if you're ok with the "require" latencies). Alternatively, use a gem cache proxy. You can use "geminabox" with a rubygems mirror, if you can tolerate the space and long mirroring times, or use a purposed "middleman" proxy, like gemstash, or nexus if your company is multilang.
