Results of the new partnership have been released as developers can now run the full Engine Yard PaaS stack on the Windows Azure cloud.

At the end of June 2013, Engine Yard announced that they had formed a partnership with Microsoft. This partnership in addition to the updates of the OSS VM Depot repository, positions Microsoft as a reasonable host for a variety of open source platforms. PaaS veteran Engine Yard came through on a promise to offer support for Windows Azure by adding a stack of Ubuntu servers to the Windows Azure store. The Engine Yard configuration consists of five servers:

  • Two extra-small HAProxy instances
  • Two small Ruby application servers
  • A single small MySQL database

Customers pay $99 for the PaaS software stack in addition to the virtual machines charges imposed by Windows Azure. Those total costs are not specifically outlined by Engine Yard or Microsoft, however a simple calculation based on the advertised virtual machine sizes and 100GB of bandwidth and storage, results in a monthly charge of $281.08. Not a bad deal and you can read the full details here.
