The Ruby on Rails cloud hosting has arrived at the VMware station. Engine Yard announced a new Platform-as-a-Service offering for Ruby on Rails applications. The service will be called xCloud, consisting of Ruby stacks hosted in Terremark’s VMware-based cloud.

Terremark has historically been aligned with VMware in cloud infrastructure. VMware’s struggle to get a commercial-grade virtualization management solution up and running has been closely tied to Terremark, where both companies have acknowledged that many of VMware’s future enterprise cloud-management tools have been developed” reports Alex Handy.

Later Alex said “Engine Yard, on the other hand, had previously dipped its toe into the cloud hosting pool, but after a short period, the company’s original cloud hosting plans were scrapped in favor of simply using Amazon Web Services to host its customers’ Ruby on Rails applications.”

xCloud offers higher throughput in disk I/O and certified regulatory compliance for companies that need to adhere to standards like PCI.
