nodeJsCloud is the brain child of developer Cliff Moon (Update: Justin Keller of nodeJsCloud contacted us to clarify that Cliff Moon is not a part of the company) and will compete with Nodejitsu, an existing node.js hosting platform now in private beta.
nodeJsCloud will offer:
- Dedicated Cloud Servers
- Git + SVN Integration
- RESTful API
Those interested in nodeJsCloud can follow the company on Twitter or sign-up for a mailing list to find out when the service is available.
Last week Salesforce.com announced its planned $212 purchase of Heroku, a cloud provider for Ruby on Rails applications, for $212 million. Salesforce.com held a Q&A for press and analysts after the announcement, and the very first question asked was how long it would take Salesforce.com to support node.js.
Red Monk analyst recently wrote:
In other words, services like nodeJsCloud and Nodejitsu are already highly anticipated. Whether this anticipation translates into demand remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Heroku is already offering experimental support for node.js to a limited number of uses.
