Nerve is a content hub for intelligent, original perspectives on love, sex, and pop culture. Founded in 1997, Nerve was also an early innovator in online dating. Edgy, hip Nerve Personals, which launched in 2001, brought online dating to a new audience. Built on cutting-edge web technology, the new app introduces users to each other through interactive and lively sharing of cultural tastes and opinions, rather than forcing them to sift through passive, static profiles.

Learn how Nerve deployed with a Node.js appliance running SmartOS on the Joyent Cloud and MongoLab’s MongoDB-as-a-Service platform. The Nodestack combination would allow Nerve to deploy a full development environment quickly and then convert seamlessly into a production environment that can scale effortlessly and automatically.
