Here at Engine Yard we get a lot of positive feedback about our services. We also get a lot of positive feedback about the value-add partnerships Engine Yard customers benefit from: GitHub, New Relic, Lighthouse, etc.
With the recent launch of Engine Yard Solo we've got a whole new set of customers, and we're committed to making their experience just as great as the one existing customers are used to. As such, we've been working with our partners to extend some of the benefits of our existing arrangements, and we've got an announcement to make!
Starting in March 2009, Engine Yard Solo customers will receive a free, fully-supported license to New Relic RPM Lite. Solo users will be able to create an RPM account and begin monitoring applications running in the Amazon EC2 cloud minutes after deployment.
New Relic, for those of you hiding under a rock, is a great performance monitoring tool for Ruby and Rails applications. Engine Yard and New Relic are long time partners, and share a desire to help customers deploy Rails in the cloud easily and affordably.
