Engine Yard, which makes application development software for Ruby and Rails deployments, said it will make its offerings available on Amazon Web Services.
The move is part of a mass migration to Amazon’s EC2 services. Engine Yard specializes in Ruby and Rails deployments. Ruby and Rails is an open source programming language used by a bevy of Web 2.0 sites. On Wednesday, the company launched Engine Yard Solo and Vertebra, two products designed to make deploying Ruby easier in a cloud computing setting.
Vertebra is an open platform for developing and managing cloud applications. Engine Yard used it for its own cloud but has open sourced the software. It features security policies, process automation, a federated design and distributed auditing.
