  • Company Description
    Engine Yard came about in early 2006 because we saw a genuine need: clients were developing business-critical Rails apps, but they didn’t want to worry about deployment issues, nor did they want to hire IT staff to manage servers.

    Clients wanted Rails-focused 24/7 operations support on top of great infrastructure, plus they wanted a smooth path from 100 users to 100,000 users.
