Production Practices

As part of our stewardship of Node.js®, this resource is dedicated to sharing tools and techniques we use at Joyent to operate Node.js in production. From coding styles and design considerations through debugging large distributed systems, we intend to document our Node.js development and production practices.

Node.js is a fundamental design choice for all of our cloud products, including our Compute Service, SmartDataCenter™, the software that powers our cloud, and Joyent Manta, our object store with integrated compute. Check them out for yourself.

We’ve broken down the articles and links into three categories: Design, Deploy, and Debug.  We’ll be adding to these articles so follow us on Twitter @joyent or join our email list.
