The Rails Machine Story.
We started one of the first Rails-focused managed operations companies in 2006. Since then we've worked alongside and helped to support hundreds of applications, teams, and their infrastructures. This process repeated hundreds of times has yielded a wealth of Operations experience, knowledge, and tooling that have proven invaluable for our customers and their teams. As a result, we are uniquely skilled to help you build, manage, and scale your application throughout its lifecycle. We offer our unique DevOps-as-a-Service model on a variety of platforms and hosting solutions, and hire and train talented DevOps personnel so you dont have to! Let our team become YOUR team!
We take care of all your DevOps needs so you can focus on your business. Bring us on for consulting engagements or let us join as full-time members of your team!

Consulting vs. Full-Time
Stop Unnecessary Distractions
Hiring experienced team members of varying disciplines is expensive and impractical. (You don't often need a DBA, but when you do - you REALLY do) Having experts in many fields available for questions, assistance, and delegating infrastructure tasks saves you time and energy. Why distract your developers from building new features to learn or test new infrastructure when our experts are available to advise or build whatever you need NOW?Let's Talk
With the accessibility of modern cloud providers, why should you consider outsourcing over hiring internally or delegating amongst your existing team?
You can hire a U.S. Based team of experts for less than the cost of one Full Time Ops person. But Operations doesn't have to be a full time job if you skip the wasted time and get straight to what works. Outsourcing to the experts at Rails Machine provides a substantial ROI by saving you both time and money in research and implementation overhead.
Your business suffers if your developers are distracted with infrastructure maintenance, outages, keeping up with new technologies, and configuration management. Hiring experts to manage these tasks and assist your team with day to day operations allows your Devs to focus on adding new features and delegate time consuming infrastructure tasks to us!
Carrying a laptop at all times can be a stressful burden on your team over time. Operations and Support create extra work for your team both during and after business hours. Outsourcing Ops and 24x7 pager responsibilities to the team at Rails Machine allows your team to work hard and rest easy.
We've had the opportunity to work alongside and help out some incredible businesses over the years. Here's what some of our customers have to say.
Bobby UhlenbrockCTO, Everything But the House
We quadrupled our monthly traffic and haven't had to change almost anything in architecture because we built it the right way from the beginning thanks to Rails Machine's help. The architectural decisions that we collaborated on in the beginning have held up for years, and have allowed us to focus on new features instead of redoing existing work in infrastructure to get to the next level.
Jon DruseSenior Dev, W+R Studios
It's all about peace of mind, I don't have to worry about provisioning servers, it's just a conversation away.
Marc LegliseEngineering Manager, Muirskate
I see Rails Machine as our outsourced DevOps team. We use Rails Machine instead of an internal operations person because we don’t need a full time internal operations person. The majority of the time the website just runs. But it is worth it to us to spend the money on a team that is very knowledgable and is there when we need them. They are truly what make me feel comfortable getting to go on vacation once in a while.
Terrell MillerFounder, Cattlemax
The transition of going from one server to high availability made me nervous, but your Site Reliability Engineers spent time assuring me it was going to be okay and explained how we would roll back if something happened. Then the first time we switched over it worked just fine and was an overall very smooth transition.
