Enjoy bare metal performance with Joyent's latest releases of Node.js, MongoDB, PostgreSQL and Percona running container-native on Triton.
Deploying containerized applications and connecting them together is a challenge because it forces developers to design for operationalization. Autopiloting applications are a powerful design pattern to solving these problems. By pushing the responsibility for understanding startup, shutdown, scaling, and recovery from failure into the application, we can build intelligent architectures that minimize human intervention in operation. But we can't rewrite all our applications at once, so we need a way to build application containers that can knit together legacy and greenfield applications alike. This project demonstrates the autopilot pattern by applying it to a simple microservices deployment using Nginx and two Node.js applications.
Dave Jensen, Founder of Road Rules, explains why Road Rules selected Node.js and how they leverage the runtime for their innovative new app.

Today, Joyent and several members of the Node.js community announced a proposal for a Node.js Advisory Board as a next step towards a fully open governance model for the Node.js open source project.
When working with Node streams, particularly object-mode streams, it's often helpful to be able to inspect a pipeline. The vstream module instruments objects to provide:
When we announced Manta last summer we knew that one of the first new features we'd like to add was a way to access the objects in Manta in the same simple way as you access local files.
Invigorated by the impending milestone 0.12 release of Node.js, and inspired by this ever expanding and evolving community, we set out on the ultimate Node.js roadtrip to knowledge share, learn, and connect.
There's a lot of confusion among Node.js users about how best to deal with errors in Node programs.
Joyent is sponsoring Node.js on the Road, a roadshow aimed at keeping the community connected with the project and production users of Node.
