ProfitBricks Unveils Ruby SDK for Its REST API

Continuing to Build Out Its Cloud Libraries to Support Popular Languages in the Quest to Provide Everyone With Painless Cloud Infrastructure

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2015) - ProfitBricks, the provider of painless cloud infrastructure IaaS, today released its SDK for Ruby, written against the company's new RESTful API. The new SDK joins ProfitBricks' previously announced support for the popular multi-cloud open-source Fog project. This new Ruby SDK, which exposes advanced functionality to take advantage of ProfitBricks' simplicity and productivity, aligns with ProfitBricks' mission to provide a painless way to automate infrastructure in the cloud.

Ruby is a general-purpose programming language, characterized as dynamic, reflective and object-oriented. Designed to balance functional programming with imperative programming, Ruby supports multiple programming paradigms, and has both a dynamic type system and automatic memory management. Its fundamental characteristics are that it promotes programmer productivity and follows the principles of good user interface design. DevOps pros encounter Ruby when they are working with Chef, one of the most popular DevOps tools.

"Since its inception in 2005, Ruby has gained a substantial community of coders worldwide," said Achim Weiss, Co-founder and CEO of ProfitBricks. "We're pleased to add Ruby functionality to our growing list of SDKs and we plan to continue releasing tools to support the DevOps community. Our DevOps Central community is growing rapidly and we're experiencing a high percentage of new customers leveraging its tutorials and code resources."

This week, ProfitBricks also added Node.js to its growing list of libraries written against its recently released REST API. To learn more, please visit https://devops.profitbricks.com/.
