Engine Yard Is The NoOps OpenShift Alternative

Why Choose Engine Yard?

The Best OpenShift Alternative

Engine Yard is a NoOps Platform-as-a-Service solution that allows you to easily deploy and manage applications with no DevOps support. Our solution is designed for application development professionals who want to focus on building applications and leave the rest to their PaaS provider. That’s why the Engine Yard platform is designed for NoOps simplicity and a friction free deployment experience requiring no DevOps support.

You want a NoOps PaaS solution with minimal operational overhead.

Engine Yard reduces the time it takes to deploy an application from days to minutes. You don’t have to configure the environment or setup deploy hooks, it’s all done behind the scenes automatically. Deploying your application on Engine Yard requires no specialized infrastructure expertise. Just give us the link to your GIT repository and we will take care of the rest. It’s that simple

You want round the clock monitoring and reporting on application performance.

Engine Yard intelligently monitors application performance providing robust insights into how the application runs and behaves in production to optimize the operations of the application (such as autoscaling). You also get automated alerts in case of application failure, abnormal resource usage etc. Customers can even add their own alerts

You want 24x7 high quality support with access to expert resources.

At Engine Yard we take great pride in our support offering which is universally acknowledged to be one of the best in business. We offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee and our support team has a consistent 98% satisfaction rating. Our DBAs and System Admins are domain experts with over 20 years of experience. We also provide you with access to a seasoned DevOps team. All these resources are included in our support plans and do not require any additional investment

You want a highly optimized infrastructure stack that scales automatically

The Engine Yard infrastructure stack has been highly optimized, tried and tested and has been developed over 10 years of full stack Ruby on Rails experience. Your application will run up to 50% faster with our infrastructure stack. Our autoscaling capabilities ensure that there is no performance degradation when unplanned traffic hits and require no manual setup or intervention. What’s more, our platform uses monitoring data to continuously optimize your application’s performance

You want one solution for all your needs with no need for add ons.

Our philosophy is to provide you with all the tools and support you need in one fully managed solution. You don’t have to purchase any add ons if you want monitoring or SysAdmin or DevOps support. You have the freedom to deploy to any AWS zone without paying a premium. And of course, we are available 24×7 to address all your support needs

Our customers are building new features and great products. They don’t have to worry about their infrastructure anymore.

Craig Bennett

CTO

“I’m so grateful we had Engine Yard during those times,” “It was the first major multi-retailer sale event where we’ve had no worries about running at sufficient scale. There was no backlog of processing and all orders were processed promptly. We got a lot of really nice comments from customers on how fast the platform was. It was extraordinary for us — brilliant.”

CJ Johnson

Chief Technical Officer Co-Founder

“We rely on Engine Yard to deliver a flexible, reliable platform with a rock-solid stack, so we don’t have to invest in building internal resources and hiring an ops team. Even with our customized configurations, Engine Yard makes it easy to deploy – we just click a button. We go from development to staging to production with all of our focus on building a great product.”

Kiran Darisi

Director Technical Operations

“We didn’t have a dedicated DevOps team at the start, so we chose Engine Yard to run our highly scalable help desk application. This allowed us to focus on building new features, and we released our pre-beta software in three months – without Engine Yard, it would have taken at least double that time. Engine Yard support and professional services are exceptional. They are quick to respond and provide their expertise on everything from stack updates to database support and chef recipes.”

Sankara Rameswaran

Principal Architect

“Engine Yard is a great partner for running our infrastructure. We are a really small team of engineers, yet we have the same kind of infrastructure as a company with excellent resources. With Engine Yard, we get deployment, monitoring, recovery, and scaling. Essentially, they are our extended DevOps team.”
