Crossover Acquires Ruby Development Service Provider Engine Yard

Engine Yard, the Ruby on Rails cloud platform and support service provider, has been acquired by Crossover, an Austin, Texas-based company that assembles and manages teams of Ruby developers, the two companies said Tuesday.

The acquisition will make Crossover, which describes itself as a "cloud talent marketplace," a one-stop shop for organizations looking for development tools and talent for their Ruby application DevOps efforts, the companies said.

"Engine Yard has a decade of deep Ruby experience at the platform and support level and Crossover is the largest provider of Ruby developer cloud teams," said Andy Tryba, CEO of Crossover, in a statement. "By combining these two, we can now move up the stack and create a full stack Ruby on Rails experience to be a one-stop shop for the 1 million-plus Ruby applications out there."
