Nodester Joins AppFog!
Dear Nodester customers,
We are incredibly excited to bring together the Nodester and the AppFog communities, and delighted to welcome you into the AppFog family!
We have been big fans of Nodester, Chris Matthieu, Alejandro Morales Gámez, and the entire Nodester team and contributors from day one. We feel that Nodester’s Open Source, developer-centric approach to solving the needs of the Node developer looking for a PaaS is very synergistic with what we do here at AppFog and believe that the combination of AppFog and Nodester is going to be huge a win for our customers - AppFog and Nodester customers equally.
“Nodester was the first 100% open source Node.JS PaaS solution available for developers and it’s still one of the few Node.JS platforms that supports native WebSockets! The Nodester community is passionate about open source public, private, and hybrid cloud PaaS services.” said Chris Matthieu, founder of Nodester. “I looked at the various leading PaaS providers out there and it became clear that the only one with our vision and mission was AppFog. This partnership will give our Node.JS developers the very best PaaS solution as Node.JS continues to grow and extend into the Enterprise.”
The first question on many of your minds might be what does this mean for the Nodester service? AppFog will now run and maintain the Nodester service as it is, but we also have Node support in our AppFog.com service. We are going to start incorporating Nodester technology into our AppFog.com Node service, and once we have completed this process, we will provide a seamless migration path from the Nodester service into the AppFog service. The transition will be completed by January 15, 2013. We want it to be as painless as possible and will work closely with you if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of the AppFog family, the Nodester users will now be able to use the same PaaS for their Ruby and Java apps that they use for their Node apps. It brings the serious support and operational excellence of AppFog to our users, enabling them to run production and enterprise workloads on their developer PaaS. Perhaps most significant of all - it allows Nodester users to deploy apps to a wide range of different IaaS providers - at a highly competitive price.
We will treat you with the same respect and care that has resulted in an incredibly loyal Nodester community of users. Welcome again to the AppFog family!
