Expansion Previously available on Mac OS C, Linux, Free BSD, Open BSD, and Windows, this December the service was expanded to work on Linux, Solaris, OmniOS and its own operating system: SmartOS; making it available to a wider range of internet servers and cloud computing environments. With this growth Node.js is becoming a trusted component of load-bearing infrastructure.
Everyman’s platform Referred to as “the everyman’s” platform for development apps; Node.js is popular and relatively user-friendly. Recently, Amazon Web Service, (AWS) - a cloud provider - released Node.js SDK for general availability. The new addition allows developers to include ‘bound parameters, streams, IAM roles for EC2instances, version locking and proxies.’ Just one of several cloud providers offering support for Node.js, AWS is in the company of Windows Azure, Rackspace, Microsoft, and the list goes one. This step shows just how much momentum the platform is gaining amongst developers. Industry experts only see its acceptance increasing, as programming becomes a more broadly understood and widely studied area.
