Cloud Application Hosting You Can Count On

Engine Yard is the leading platform as a service (PaaS) for all your web application hosting and management needs.

Standardize & Simplify Cloud Application Hosting

As applications move to the cloud app developers now have a problem of choice- which APIs would be most useful for deploying their software – and on what infrastructure – where the application layers and logs will be monitored – and even where those logs will be stored. They need to consider traceability, and performance, horizontal or vertical scaling issues, etc.

Most teams end up creating bespoke permutations and combinations that work great until upgrades require you to keep up with tens or hundreds of configuration changes. There is a better, more efficient way. Choose Engine Yard. It is designed specifically for application developers and takes the complexity out of infrastructure provisioning with standardized best-in-class operations that deliver economies of scale and evolve easily with minimal hassle.

We provide a complete cloud hosting platform for a wide range of applications built in Ruby on Rails, PHP, Node.js, and other languages (you can install any language framework you wish). Our platform automation takes care of the configuration, deployment, and ongoing maintenance of your application in the cloud. We provide solutions for small businesses looking to deploy web applications that require a single compute instance as well as large enterprises with applications that require the reliability and performance of high availability clusters.

Simple Deployment Experience
Application deployment has never been easier. We have reduced the time it takes to deploy new apps from days to minutes with a quick one click deployment directly from your Github repository. Simply write your code, commit your changes and just push to the remote repository. Based on your Dockerfile, an image will be built and the containers that will run your application will be deployed. You get out of the box support for popular languages and frameworks like Node.js, Python, PHP, and of course Ruby on Rails. You can also run your code without any customization. Engine Yard automatically analyzes your code, creates containers, and runs them on Kubernetes clusters.
Designed For Scale & Performance
Using Engine Yard you can automatically scale your application by not having to worry about provisioning infrastructure based on planned usage. Your app can run upto 50% faster with our highly optimized infrastructure stack. The Engine Yard platform uses containers for speed and agility as well as flexibility. Based on cpu, memory, or even custom business rules, you can set the auto scaling policy that makes your application ready to serve an increased number of requests, whenever this is needed. You can also keep costs low and easily optimize resource utilization as you scale. The platform monitors application performance and uses these insights to intelligently rightsize infrastructure using machine learning technologies. You can maximize availability with rolling deployments meaning no downtime during deployments. Engine Yard leverages 12 factor app principles for a modern application deployment and management experience.
Fully Managed Service
Engine Yard enables you to focus on building your apps by managing the rest for you. Our platform automation takes care of the configuration, deployment, and ongoing maintenance of your application in the cloud. We make sure all aspects of application management are covered including installing your code and configuring a hardened runtime environment, including OS, language, and database environments. We automatically do the planning for replication, backup, and recovery. You can also stay up to date once you deploy your environment. with regular stack updates for both security patches and new functionality. The engine yard platform lives within your private and isolated account, which means that you share no resources with anyone. This is a unique feature in terms of security and compliance. Our platform also automatically configures all security groups and firewalls to minimize exposure.
