Engine Yard has been a pioneer in Ruby on Rails hosting since 2006. Our team has extensive experience working on Open Source Software projects like Bundler, Sinatra, fog, Ruby on Rails, JRuby, Bundler, RVM, Rubinius, and Travis CI. With Engine Yard’s Ruby on Rails, you can select the best application server type for your app with choices like Unicorn, Passenger, and Puma.
Engine Yard 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 solutions are designed 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.
Application deployment has never been easier than with Engine Yard. 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.
Our platform automation takes care of the configuration, deployment, and ongoing maintenance of your application in the cloud.
Automatically scale your application by not having to worry about provisioning infrastructure based on planned usage. The Engine Yard platform intelligently monitors application performance providing robust insights into how the application runs and behaves in production to optimize the operations of the application.
At Engine Yard we take great pride in our support offering which is universally acknowledged to be one of the best in business.
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. 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.
Using Engine Yard has enabled the Comestri team to focus on maximum velocity for dev, while relying on a technology partner who can help us with great infrastructure and expert support even for our custom requirements.
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.

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.

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.
