"As more large scale enterprise applications and consumer services are deployed on the Node platform, they'll need the cost-effective performance and scalability that our messaging appliance provides."

Ottawa - Solace Systems, the provider of messaging appliances, has announced support for Node.js, an open source platform for server-side Javascript intended to simplify the building and deployment of real-time web applications.

Node.js enables "event-driven" programming so real-time applications publish information and consume resources only when necessary. Solace's appliances allow applications running in Node.js to share real-time data with users locally and around the world by distributing it over LANs, WANs, and the internet.

"Everyone wants more powerful apps - things like Google Instant and Facebook that are expected to support millions of users on a ton of devices in real time," said Tom Hughes-Croucher, author of Up and Running with Node.js. "These are the expectations people have now, and if you did that with traditional frameworks it would take forever and the hardware would cost millions of dollars. Node is really fast, really easy to scale, and the Javascript aspect means it's really easy to build."

"The combination of Node.js and Solace makes it easier and less expensive to build, deploy and scale web applications by enabling the event-driven distribution of information with a fraction of the code and datacenter resources needed using other methods," said Shawn McAllister, Solace's chief technology officer. "As more large scale enterprise applications and consumer services are deployed on the Node platform, they'll need the cost-effective performance and scalability that our messaging appliance provides."
