Amazon has kicked into Engine Yard’s $15 million Series B round along with Benchmark Capital and New Enterprise Associates. The two-year-old 70-man open source company provides a deployment infrastructure, services and support for developers to take their Ruby and Rails applications to the cloud.
The money should underwrite its anticipated cloud computing cluster platform and expand its business.
Presumably Engine Yard, which is behind the Ruby open source projects, Rubinius and Merb, will start using Amazon’s web services.
The company got $3.5 million from Benchmark back in January.
Ruby and Rails are of course alternatives to .NET and Java.
