Platform for hosting Ruby and Ruby on Rails apps,
focusing on the developers happiness.

With us you'll soon forget about server administration
and having to wake up at 3 a.m. again.

By signing up you agree to the terms of service and privacy policy.

Optimized for Ruby

No matter that you are using Rails, Sinatra, Lotus or any other Rack based framework. Your apps get automatic configuration, routing with intelligent load balancer and frontend cache.

Compare us to traditional VPS.

Works out of the box

We offer complete stack for modern web apps without any additional configuration: MRI Ruby, JRuby, Rubinius, Thin, Puma, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch, Sidekiq, Delayed Job, Websockets and Cron.

Not enough? Run any custom process which doesn't need to expose open ports to the outside world.

Start any services on a single server

There are no constraints, run as many services as you want, even on a single server. We are giving pretty decent defaults, but you can adjust the whole set up on your own.

Not sure what is the best setup for your app? We are available on the support chat room to help.

V-servers run directly on physical machines

We operate only on dedicated servers, so there is no additional layer of virtualization like on other PaaS providers based on the Amazon cloud.

To protect you from hardware failures all data are safely stored across multiple machines. We have an automated frontend failover setup, so even when servers crash, your apps keep running.

Two regions - Europe and North America

Servers closer to your customers mean faster page loads. And faster page loads mean happier customers.

All Shelly services, internal as well as external, are not shared between regions. This means that logs, backups, files and database storage are maintained in one region.

We fulfill all required privacy laws in European Union.

Don't waste time and money on add-ons

We give a lot of additional features for everyone. There is no need to spend money and time on files storage, files backups, database backups, logs access and e-mail server. Prefer to keep external files on S3 anyway? No problem. We don't limit you to our solutions.

Need more? We can set up for you replication for PostgreSQL and replica sets for MongoDB.

Shell based workflow

Every action in our service can be done right from the shell. No matter if you want to edit cloud's members or check the logs.

Version control your infrastructure. Hosting settings are stored in the application repository in a YAML file called Cloudfile and deployment is done with git push.

Moreover, we are giving access to servers via ssh.

Pay only for what you use

Need an additional cloud for staging, but you don't want to overpay? Shelly Cloud is ideal for you, because every cloud can be turned on or off whenever you need to.

We bill per hour. At the end of the month you will get an invoice and we will charge your card or PayPal account.
