In the coming month we’ll be introducing Phoenix on Elixir as a first class framework and language on the Engine Yard Cloud Platform. Currently Engine Yard supports Ruby, PHP, and NodeJS. Elixir is a developer friendly, performant, and reliable language. Our offering will be releasing with the following features:
- dashboard and cli based releases
- dashboard and cli based database migrations
- preconfigured cluster of Beam nodes.
Our roots started in the Ruby and Rails communities. We have since received multiple requests from our customers for our support of Elixir. We noticed a gap between deploying applications yourself and using an automated deployment platform that doesn’t allow full network access for OTP operations. Leveraging our managed service offerings we’ll be able to offer a fully configured OTP cluster on startup. This is because the instances in an environment we provision are within their own network. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available from our engineering team as the language is brought into beta. If you would like to be included in our beta of managed Phoenix on Elixir please contact our customer success team.
