Engine Yard & New Relic: Helping Customers Rapidly Build & Scale High Performing Apps Since 2008

Engine Yard and New Relic understand that ensuring superior service requires a robust deployment platform and the right performance tools. That’s why Engine Yard, a leading Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provider, became our first partner in 2008. Since then we’ve enjoyed a long and harmonious relationship, and have helped many joint customers deliver innovative, scalable applications with the highest standard of app performance.

Cerego, the breakthrough web-based learning platform, began experiencing strains on the limits of their Tokyo data center systems as the company started to grow rapidly. The company was faced with a decision: continue to build, manage, and maintain its own systems, or make the move to the cloud. They chose to move to the cloud, and selected Engine Yard and New Relic to build, scale, and manage their fast-growing business.

“Using the combination of Engine Yard Cloud and New Relic, we can focus on constantly improving our application, instead of working on platform issues.”

– Brian Tsai, COO of Cerego

Engine Yard gave them the nimble and flexible environments they needed to test rapidly and scale out efficiently, while New Relic allowed them to analyze performance trends and “see which queries [were] causing issues—whether [on] the Ruby side or the network side.”

Badgeville, the behavior platform, quickly became the gold standard for gamification, used by hundreds of Fortune 1000 enterprises and innovation leaders. The company needed a way to offload non-differentiating operations tasks in order to accelerate innovation and cut costs. They chose Engine Yard and New Relic for the deployment and management of its applications.

Engine Yard provided them with a pre-integrated, pre-tested Ruby on Rails technology stack, while New Relic “[gave them] a clear view of the underlying problem when troubleshooting issues.”

By choosing Engine Yard and New Relic, the company was able to provide their developers with the agility to focus on core competencies, build feature-rich products, and slash time-to-market for new products.
