At Joyent, we are all about getting your projects and applications better performance and reliability than any other cloud provider. We believe Node.js and SmartOS are a couple of key technologies to accomplish this mission. That's why we want to highlight Nodejitsu, a premier Node.js platform-as-a-service offering. Node.js application developers are flocking to the platform to scale and distribute their applications with ease while also improving deployment quality, resiliency, and time-to-market.
Nodejitsu has built its hosting platform from the ground up using Node.js – a runtime language of which Joyent is the corporate steward. As a result, developers can pre-configure or customize Nodejitsu for any scenario of Node.js application deployment. “From a developer’s standpoint, deploying a Node.js application on Nodejitsu couldn’t be any easier,” explains Nuno Job, Nodejitsu’s Chief Commercial Officer. “Using our Jitsu deployment tool, you just write ‘Jitsu deploy’ in the command line, your application will be completely unchanged when it deploys.”
Nodejitsu’s platform is designed to enable users to take advantage of the latest versions of technologies such as WebSocket, SPDY, and socket.io. The team also prides themselves on providing top notch, hands on customer support through the #nodejitsu IRC channel. As some of the earliest adopters of Node.js, Nodejitsu’s leaders believe in the power of open source software and open standards.
The folks here at Joyent are thrilled that Nodejitsu have chosen us as their IaaS. “Other cloud infrastructure providers call me all the time wanting us to switch. So far, none of them can even come close to what Joyent gives us,” Nuno Job, Nodejitsu’s Chief Commercial Officer.
Nodejitsu is part of the First Nodestack Online Conference, happening Wednesday October 16th, 2012 from 9am to 1pm PST. Tune in for Nuno’s talk at 9:15 to hear some of ‘The Crazy-Cool Things you can do with Nodejs + Use Cases for the stack.’
