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.

CloudEXPO | DevOpsSUMMIT | DXWorldEXPO Silicon Valley 2019 will cover all of these tools, with the most comprehensive program and with 222 rockstar speakers throughout our industry presenting 22 Keynotes and General Sessions, 250 Breakout Sessions along 10 Tracks, as well as our signature Power Panels. Our Expo Floor will bring together the leading global 200 companies throughout the world of Cloud Computing, DevOps, IoT, Smart Cities, FinTech, Digital Transformation, and all they entail. As your enterprise creates a vision and strategy that enables you to create your own unique, long-term success, learning about all the technologies involved is essential. Companies today not only form multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures, but create them with built-in cognitive capabilities.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.
DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO, to be held June 25-26, 2019 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA – announces that its Call for Papers is open. Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's largest enterprises – and delivering real results. Among the proven benefits, DevOps is correlated with 20% faster time-to-market, 22% improvement in quality, and 18% reduction in dev and ops costs, according to research firm Vanson-Bourne. It is changing the way IT works, how businesses interact with customers, and how organizations are buying, building, and delivering software.
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform. Then we'll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar. Not only is this approach fast, it's also more secure and robust for operators. If you are running infrastructure, this talk will change how you think about your job in profound ways.
The current environment of Continuous Disruption requires companies to transform how they work and how they engineer their products. Transformations are notoriously hard to execute, yet many companies have succeeded. What can we learn from them? Can we produce a blueprint for a transformation? This presentation will cover several distinct approaches that companies take to achieve transformation. Each approach utilizes different levers and comes with its own advantages, tradeoffs, costs, risks, and outcomes.
