Engine Yard Selects Terremark to Provide Private Cloud Infrastructure

Terremark Worldwide, Inc., a leading global provider of managed IT infrastructure services, today announced that Engine Yard has selected Terremark’s Enterprise Cloud for Engine Yard customers who require a private cloud service. Engine Yard is the leading provider of Ruby on Rails automation and management technologies delivering both private and public cloud offerings. With more than 800 customers, the Engine Yard Cloud Platform runs some of the world’s largest Rails-based applications.

Terremark Enterprise Cloud was the ideal Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) for Engine Yard Private Cloud based on its proven track record of providing enterprise and Federal government customers industry-leading reliability, scalability and security. As Engine Yard continues to build its private cloud customer base, the Enterprise Cloud supports the Engine Yard mission to deliver the most reliable and secure Ruby on Rails platform available.

“Developers can take full advantage of Rails when they’re not losing cycles to the complexities of application deployment and maintenance. Over the last year, we’ve seen rapid adoption of our public cloud offering, and we anticipate this partnership with Terremark will drive equal adoption in our private cloud offering,” said John Dillon, Engine Yard CEO. “Engine Yard cloud offerings help developers stop worrying about scalability, security and uptime so they can focus on the art of building great applications”

The Terremark Enterprise Cloud allows customers the ability to provision, configure, deploy and manage computing resources for mission-critical applications in minutes, giving control over a flexible pool of computing resources with a web-based console for deploying server capacity on demand. The platform provides proven superior scalability and flexibility, as well as a suite of managed security services that includes comprehensive vulnerability assessments, log aggregation and event correlation, network session flow analysis, attack replay, and application firewall management.

“This exciting new partnership with Engine Yard will be greatly beneficial to the many Rails application developers and web development firms that are looking for a reliable, cost-effective solution to their business-critical IT infrastructure needs,” said Manuel D. Medina, Terremark’s Chairman and CEO. “Becoming the infrastructure provider for the Engine Yard private cloud offering presents a unique opportunity for our two companies to deliver the true power of cloud computing to customers developing the latest and most sophisticated Rails-based applications.”

"Engine Yard's selection of Terremark Enterprise Cloud for its private cloud offering presents a strong proof-point for the benefits of VMware vCloud services,” said Dan Chu, Vice President, Cloud Infrastructure and Services, VMware. "By working with Terremark, Engine Yard is able to leverage the VMware platform to enable the flexibility, scalability and security enterprise customers require."
