ChannelEyes chose Engine Yard because we were looking for a reliable and scalable platform for a Rails-based social media platform. The support team has been highly responsive, and we've saved countless hours by relying on their technical expertise with deploying high-traffic Rails apps. With that time savings, our developers were able to focus on pushing the technical envelope with multi-layer security, a unique friending engine, as well as messaging.

Engine Yard has helped us save hundreds of hours on infrastructure work and on deployments. For Ruby on Rails applications, it has been the best PaaS provider for years.
Software Engineer, Oxon
We recommend Engine Yard Cloud to all of our clients, including Toyota Kenya, because we get huge time and cost savings. We would need another 5 people to manage infrastructure internally. Instead, we rely on Engine Yard, and we focus our developers on writing code which keeps them and our customers happy.
