SendGrid Partners With Leading Cloud Development Platforms

Heroku, Engine Yard, Cloudbees, Standing Cloud and AppHarbor Integrate SendGrid to Help App Developers Manage & Deliver Transactional Email

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - Jul 25, 2012) - SendGrid, the leader in email deliverability, today announced partnerships with leading cloud application development platforms Heroku, Engine Yard, Cloudbees, Standing Cloud and AppHarbor. Available as an integrated service within each of the widely adopted platforms, SendGrid gives developers building, testing and deploying web applications in any programming language a trusted option for transactional email delivery and management.

The integrations are part of SendGrid's strategy to make its service widely available, easy to access and simple to deploy, regardless of what cloud services development teams are using. SendGrid relieves development teams of the cost and complexity of managing their applications' underlying transactional email management infrastructures, freeing them to build great applications without worrying about email delivery rates, spam folders, ISP blacklists or scaling to meet high user volume. SendGrid is also available as an integrated service with major cloud computing and hosting platforms, including Rackspace, Softlayer and HP Cloud Services.

"The delivery and management of application-generated email is a hassle and time drain for developers, but it remains critical that password resets, account confirmations and a host of other user-triggered email notifications are reaching their customers," said Robert Phillips, Vice President, Marketing, SendGrid. "Our integration with leading cloud platforms is directly in-line with our mission to make email easy for development teams and to provide fantastic developer support."

Developers can select from one of several paid plans. All monthly paid plans include basic deliverability features, SMTP relay service integration and APIs, best-of-class customer support and advanced analytics (open, click, bounce and delivery tracking). Developers that choose the Silver Plan or above can take advantage of advanced deliverability features, including their own dedicated IP address, whitelist services, ISP deliverability outreach, feedback loops and more, as well as OEM, Parse and Event APIs.
