Engine Yard Adds Java Support and Continues to Extend Flexibility of PaaS Offering [Global Data Point]
(Global Data Point Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Engine Yard, the leading Platform as a Service (PaaS), today announced support for Java, further extending the flexibility and choice it offers customers -- from Web 2.0 companies to large corporations. This latest enhancement is yet another milestone in the Engine Yard vision to deliver a cloud application platform that gives developers and IT managers a greater variety of choices for languages, components, deployment options and infrastructure, as well as more granular control of their environments. Engine Yard offers the option of deploying apps in a number of languages including Ruby, PHP, Node.js and now Java. Engine Yard also announced today that it is welcoming Oracle as one of its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers.
"We have listened closely to our customers' requirements. Increasingly, they include the need to innovate with new apps and services on the Java platform, extend existing Java apps and migrate them to a cloud application platform," said Rob Walters, CTO of Engine Yard. "By delivering support for Java, we're able to provide our industry leading PaaS across a variety of markets and use cases. We also continue to expand our list of infrastructure providers and look forward to offering support for Oracle Cloud."
"Being able to build, deploy and manage Java apps on Engine Yard will open a lot of new opportunities for us," said Tim Merkel, partner at Big Compass. "Our enterprise customers are looking to share their core HR and accounting data with partners and employees via mobile, without deploying those enterprise apps outside their four walls. With Java support on Engine Yard, we can help them build mobile apps and deploy to the cloud, while relying on Engine Yard DevOps expertise in scaling and supporting enterprise-level apps."
