Spring Product Updates

Happy spring! While we’re all gearing up for baseball (Go Giants!) and warmer weather, I just wanted to take a quick moment to highlight some of our recent updates to Engine Yard Cloud.

New Instance Size

We are also very happy to announce that today, we have released Amazon’s latest Medium instance on the Engine Yard Cloud product. Pricing for the new Medium instance (m1.medium) is $0.24/hr. You can find all of our pricing information here. More in-depth information about the instance sizes can be found here.

More Ruby, More Data

In the last couple of months, we’ve also released Ruby 1.9.3 and PostgreSQL 9.1 into GA. We’ve received a lot of great feedback from customers using these and we think you’ll be as thrilled as they are to use them.

JRuby and Node.js Updates

We’re definitely ramping up our stack. Back in January, we upgraded Node.js 0.6.1 to 0.6.8. It is now installed from EY Portage and uninstalled from /opt/node. And more recently, we upgraded JRuby to 1.6.7 from 1.6.6. Check out more information about it here.
