Newest Customers Laud Engine Yard Expert Support, Reliable Infrastructure and Ability to Scale Services Quickly

Burgeoning Engine Yard community promoting Ruby on Rails adoption

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Engine Yard, the leader in Ruby on Rails automation and management technologies, today announced that they have over 600 customers on the Engine Yard platform, including Aurumis, Dental Drug Search, Pledge Music Ltd., PV Powered, and Tweetiator LLC.

Customers call out Engine Yard support, reliable uptime and ability to scale quickly as primary reasons for their high satisfaction. In addition, they credit the deep Engine Yard domain experience in all things Ruby on Rails as a key differentiator.

"The Engine Yard service removes so many headaches," said Justin Saul, CEO of Aurumis. "It gets rid of the stress of running our own production system. It helps us to scale quickly, as needed. And, Engine Yard support does a great job of answering questions, even at 2am."

"Engine Yard provides excellent service, support, and technical knowledge," said Conrad Barnes, Founder of Dental Drug Search. "We were looking for a reliable and dependable service, and we've had zero problems. Engine Yard provided everything we needed. They are very good at what they do."

"One of the reasons we chose Engine Yard was their commitment to the Ruby on Rails community," said Zachery Powell, Senior Developer at Pledge Music Ltd. "We were familiar with Engine Yard because of their good community relations and have been very happy with the service they provide."

"Engine Yard delivers excellent service that ensures our customers have dependable access to critical information," said Gregg Patterson, CEO at PV Powered. "Engine Yard provides the same high reliability, uptime, and overall value to us as we do to our customers."

"As we built Tweetiator.com, we looked for very high level service and support for our cloud infrastructure," said Ron Kornfeld of Tweetiator LLC. "Engine Yard delivers reliable uptime and provides excellent support giving us the ability to focus on building our business. We find it extremely valuable."

Community Momentum

Engine Yard has continued to contribute to the Ruby on Rails community. In 2009, Engine Yard has sponsored over 50 Ruby on Rails related events and user groups. The Engine Yard blog, which offers practical tips on everything Ruby on Rails from Engine Yard in-house experts, has become a must-read for developers and has boosted 2009 site traffic into uncharted territory. The Engine Yard Twitter account has grown 289% in the past three months alone.

Engine Yard also hosted a wildly popular developer contest that leveraged social media to engage the Ruby on Rails community. Participants completed a programming challenge and used Twitter to enter their submissions. The contest yielded more than 200 entrants with site traffic surging 420% over the same time the previous month. A new contest will be announced in September.

"To say the least, so far 2009 has been very exciting at Engine Yard," says Tom Mornini, CTO and Co-Founder of Engine Yard. "We look forward to the continued success of Ruby on Rails and are excited to partner with the community in fostering increased adoption."

To further contribute to the community, Engine Yard took over legacy maintenance duties for Ruby 1.8.6 to support developers who have written libraries or applications with specific 1.8.6 dependencies, and who do not intend to port forward to future versions.
