With this partnership, Nodejitsu's Platform-as-a-Service and orchestration tools will run in the Joyent Cloud to give Nodejitsu users the best front-end connected to the best back-end environments for running Node.js applications.
Joyent Cloud provides public and private cloud computing software and services to popular Web applications that include LinkedIn, Voxer, Gilt Groupe and TaskRabbit. Joyent is the corporate steward of the Node.js open source project and manages the Node.js code repositories.
"This partnership represents a best-of-breed Node infrastructure in collaboration with a best-of-breed Node application orchestration platform to create the best possible experience for customers," said Nodejitsu CEO Charlie Robbins. "We are very excited about working together with Joyent to guide Node.js into the future."
Nodejitsu has long been dedicated to the UserLand portion of Node.js, maintaining over 200 widely used open source modules that are complementary to their commercial solutions.
"Nodejitsu provides cohesive tools for managing Node.js applications in public, hybrid or private clouds. This mitigates the risk and overhead associated with integrating third party deployment, monitoring, provisioning, and scaling solutions," said Nodejitsu CTO Paolo Fragomeni.
This partnership enables the rapid expansion of Node.js platform services to drive adoption of Node.js. It also enables more developers and operations teams to take advantage of Joyent's unique capabilities for Quality Assurance and performance-tuning Node.js applications. In particular, Joyent Cloud Analytics, powered by DTrace, provides deep application monitoring and performance analytics equivalent to running core dumps and CPU profiling, in a dynamic environment. Until now, these types of environments have presented challenges for developers seeking deep insights into application and compute processes. Further, Joyent Cloud delivers debugging tools for Node.js that accelerate application development and reduce the cost and man-hours required to achieve stability.
"Nodejitsu is one of the leading players in the Node.js space and our team is very eager to work with them to build out additional capabilities and drive user adoption and awareness of both the Node.js environment and Nodejitsu's tools," said Steve Tuck, general manager of the Joyent Cloud.
Based in New York, NY, Nodejitsu provides a Platform-as-a-Service environment for Node.js applications ranging from development environments to enterprise deployments. The company also provides a variety of tools and platforms to simplify management and orchestration of Node.js applications. Nodejitsu is an active participant in the Node.js open source project and contributes significant code to the various Node.js repositories on GitHub.
