JRuby Meets Engine Yard Cloud

In an earlier item, I talked about an impressive cloud startup called Piston Cloud. Now I'm going to talk about Engine Yard Cloud.

The venture-funded Engine Yard is aimed at helping programmers write cloud apps. Founded five years ago, its initial foray was a Platform as a Service (PaaS) tool for Ruby on Rails developers.

Last month, Engine Yard embraced JRuby developers. JRuby is a Java-based rev of Ruby, and these apps can now run on the Engine Yard cloud infrastructure. Engine Cloud can also support PHP apps.
