Today we are excited to announce a new partnership with NYI, a colocation provider that is now offering Deis-on-metal solutions to customers in New York, New Jersey, and throughout the Northeast. As you may already know, Engine Yard’s Deis is the leading Docker-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for deploying and managing distributed applications. As Deis has matured, we’ve seen more and more users running on bare metal. We’ve also learned containers on metal offer significant price benefits, consistent performance, and a strong security and compliance story.
As part of this partnership, NYI is providing Engine Yard with the power, space, and dedicated servers for a distributed systems lab that will be used to harden Deis for large-scale colocation environments. This lab will allow us to test failure modes, network partitions, and performance deltas between Deis releases. The lab will also help ensure container on metal solutions meet customer standards for high-performance, scalability, and high-availability.
We are excited to work with the NYI team to see Deis and containers on metal reach its full potential. If you're interested in an in-person demo at an NYI facility, or just want to learn more about Deis and containers on metal, please contact our customer success team.
