Microsoft and Ascent Partnership Updates OSS Relevance with Engine Yard for Windows Azure

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.
