StrongLoop Releases StrongOps 2.0 DevOps Service for Node.js

Most Comprehensive Performance Monitoring and Operations Solution for Node.js Deployments on Linux and Windows

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/14 -- StrongLoop, the leading provider of solutions for Node.js, today announced the general availability of StrongOps 2.0, the first Node.js specific application lifecycle management (ALM) solution to include both monitoring and DevOps capabilities for Linux, Windows and Mac. Node.js continues to gain popularity for the creation "front edge" APIs that mobile applications use to connect to backend data, enabling true enterprise mobility.

StrongOps makes it possible for developers and operations teams to troubleshoot performance and runtime problems through the development, test and production stages of their Node application lifecycle. This latest release makes StrongOps the most comprehensive DevOps dashboard for Node.js. StrongOps pushes beyond the standard application performance monitoring (APM) features that other vendors offer for Node apps by offering a number of first-time features such as run-time debugging, process and cluster management, memory leak analysis, error tracing, profiling and performance monitoring, all in a single dashboard.

"StrongOps allows us to profile our application in real time. We can see and analyze our slow end points, monitor our heap and CPU usage. It is particularly valuable in load testing and production monitoring, allowing us to catch performance problems before they overwhelm us," said Rick Waugh of Finger Foods Studios. "I cannot see going into production without a profiling solution like StrongOps in place."

StrongOps helps companies that are running Node in production achieve maximum performance and uptime. Organizations that have already deployed Node into production have quickly realized that the current tool-chains for Node are either immature or non-existent. Some of the existing tooling in this space doesn't run on Linux or Windows, or if it does, requires complicated workarounds to function.

What's New in StrongOps

  • Cluster management to scale on demand with no application restarts
  • Management of Node process to control downtime and hot deployments
  • Improved CPU profiling and GC stats to better optimize code
  • Memory profiling and heap dumps to identify memory leaks and code hotspots
  • Error reporting that does away with painful log scraping and error counting
  • Secured monitoring with encrypted performance data sent across firewalls
  • Alerts and notifications of problems as they happen

"Node API servers and apps are already in production at major corporations around the world," said Issac Roth, CEO. "Until now there hasn't been professional level tooling for Node like it exists for Java. With StrongOps 2.0 you can confidently put Node into production."

A subscription to StrongOps entitles developers to technical support for Node core and modules, plus tools to create private registries and API servers.

Pricing and availability
StrongOps 2.0 is available immediately. Monthly subscriptions start at $99 per process/month with promotional pricing available for startups. For more information visit the StrongLoop subscriptions page.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
