WP Engine

WP Engine is like Heroku for WordPress – fully managed, fast, scalable, secure deployment, coupled with unique tools for developers and power users.

The service includes top-notch support (more WordPress experts on staff per 1000 customers than anyone else), one-click backup/restore, optimization for speed and scalability, and security features that include automatic software upgrades.

WP Engine allows customers to use any WordPress plugin or theme, including custom code.

The platform is ideal for pro-bloggers, for businesses, and also for small dev shops and consultants whose reputation is tied to the performance of the hosting company they select for their clients.
