Announcing the MetaCDN Add-On for Engine Yard

MetaCDN partners with Engine Yard for integrated multi-cdn Add-On.
MetaCDN partners with Engine Yard for powerful, integrated Multi-CDN Add-On.

At MetaCDN we are always on the look out for great application and web hosts to work with and support. Too often customers come to us with under-performing, oversubscribed and unscalable web infrastructure. MetaCDN can help but it can only do so much – if the hosting foundation is poor then the end result can be disappointing when you get hit with lots of traffic, leading to disappointed customers, lost sales and marketing opportunities. Engine Yard are experts in running industrial strength, scalable applications in the cloud with over one billion hours of experience on AWS. You can deploy, scale and monitor your PHP, Ruby and Node.js apps with EngineYard’s cloud application management platform.

We are very pleased to announce that MetaCDN has teamed with Engine Yard to deliver one-click access to our Multi-CDN network. Engine Yard users can now scale globally with 125+ PoPs worldwide by using the MetaCDN Engine Yard Add-On.
