Developers can now deploy enterprise-grade Node.js on Kubernetes
San Francisco, CA – July 26, 2016 – NodeSource, the Enterprise Node Company™, today announced at Node Summit 2016 the beta launch of its containerized N|Solid™ deployment for Kubernetes. With this release, NodeSource is offering the first version of Node.js with production-ready continuous performance and security monitoring within a Kubernetes cluster.
A recent Node.js Foundation survey found that 45 percent of developers use Node.js with container technologies such as Docker. As companies look to build out their next-generation architectures, Node.js and containerization are emerging as two key components for powering rapid technical innovation.
Kubernetes makes deploying, scaling and managing containerized services fast and simple. With an N|Solid deployment for Kubernetes, developers get real-time performance monitoring and vulnerability scanning of Node.js applications running in a Kubernetes cluster.
“Node.js is ideal for containers because it allows developers to quickly build, iterate and scale cloud-native APIs, apps and microservices,” says Aparna Sinha, Product Manager, Kubernetes & Google Container Engine. “It is great to see NodeSource offering a Kubernetes deployment for Node-specific monitoring and security, allowing companies to scale with confidence.”
N|Solid combined with Kubernetes orchestration provides developer and operations teams with:
Efficient scaling of microservice/distributed architectures
Node-specific performance insights and analyses
Continuous Node.js package security vulnerability scanning
Expedited deployment of new Node applications
Automated rollouts and rollbacks
Service discovery and load balancing
Horizontal application scaling
“We are seeing a popular trend emerging among our enterprise customers with the adoption of containerization for Node.js and Kubernetes for cloud orchestration,” says Joe McCann, CEO and co-founder of NodeSource. “Adding the powerful monitoring and security features of N|Solid, we are creating the trifecta for high-performance Node.js services.”
N|Solid is available for download as a native package (Linux and Mac), Docker images and now as a pre-configured Kubernetes deployment. For more information, visit <landing page>.
