PaaS provider Engine Yard, the particular favorite of Rails and PHP developers, announced a big moved designed to bolster its ecosystem and make its platform more attractive on the broader scope.
The company put an emphasis on categorizing its partners, and developed specialized ‘tracks’ for them which they can follow in order to maximize the return from their respective relationships with Engine Yard. Each partner can receive specific benefits from each course, whether they’re one of the 200 app developers working PaaS, one of the 100 technology partners or an infrastructure provider.
Interestingly enough, Engine Yard also revealed a track dedicated to startup incubators. Members of this particular program can offer their startups a roadmap to realize their idea – an idea that will run on the EngineYard PaaS at one point or another.
“We’ve built our partner program to combine the strength of our leading commercial grade PaaS platform with the expertise and reach of our network of world-class service and solution providers. This combination provides our customers with the tools and resources necessary to support, manage and innovate with application solutions,” said Marcy Campbell, SVP Global Alliances and Business Development at Engine Yard.
