IronMQ joins IronWorker on Engine Yard to let developers do even bigger things with their applications by providing industrial-strength ways to scale out processing and pass messages between independent processes.
Engine Yard is one of the leading cloud platforms and largely defined the Platform as a Service category. Engine Yard provides a complete and commercial grade solution that gives developers the freedom to focus on building great applications rather than managing an intricate platform.
IronMQ and IronWorker are two hosted and elastic services from Iron.io that provide simple ways to supercharge applications by adding massive distributed processing and asynchronous message- and event-handling.

EngineYard's customers include many well-known consumer brands doing industrial-sized computing on the cloud. IronMQ fits well into these types of high-performance/high-availability environments. IronMQ provides an easy way to add a messaging layer which means that apps can trigger and respond to events from other parts of the app or from other systems.
Developers are using IronMQ to process massive amounts of streaming data, connect mobile apps to backend systems, orchestrate sequencing and processing flows, sync with legacy systems, and handle many other core messaging needs.
