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.

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
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.

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
