Joyent Cloud Partners With NodeFly to Deliver First Node.js Application Monitoring Tool in the Cloud

NodeFly Integrates Analytics Data via Joyent Cloud Analytics API to Help Companies Monitor and Optimize Performance of Node.js Apps in Real-Time

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - Jan 19, 2012) - Joyent Cloud, the highest performance public cloud, and NodeFly, an innovative provider of cloud application and infrastructure monitoring services, today announced a partnership to offer Node.js analytics services to Joyent Cloud customers. NodeFly is the first monitoring services company to integrate Node.js analytics into its offering.

NodeFly CTO Eugene Kaydalov and his team developed the analytics service by pulling data from Joyent Cloud Analytics, a unique analytics technology leveraging DTrace, to provide latency and performance measurements in real-time on production applications. NodeFly's Node.js analytics package only works for applications running in the Joyent Cloud.

"We use Joyent's new Cloud API to extract highly granular information and give users running Node.js a complete, single-pane monitoring solution," explains Kaydalov. "Because so many companies interested in running fast, dynamic applications are turning to Node.js, we were very eager to fulfill their needs with a breakthrough product."

As part of the partnership, Joyent Cloud customers receive a free Standard subscription to NodeFly.

The partnership delivers numerous benefits to Joyent Cloud customers, including:

  • Unique capabilities to monitor and visualize Node.js apps in real-time in per second increments
  • Ability to simultaneously monitor the latency of the same application running in multiple clouds
  • Automated discovery of new cloud services, which are auto-populated in the NodeFly dashboard
  • Simple deployment of NodeFly with a single line of code

Joyent Cloud's parent company, Joyent Inc., is the corporate steward of the Node.js open source project -- the fastest growing programming language and the most followed code repository on GitHub.

"The combination of NodeFly and Joyent Cloud Analytics provides our customers running Node.js apps an extremely powerful analytics combo," says Steve Tuck, General Manager of Joyent Cloud. "We share with NodeFly a belief that anyone running cloud applications should have complete and total transparency into any process in their architecture, from the vCPU to the kernel to the database to the web server."

NodeFly's monitoring service complements Joyent Cloud Analytics, a free analytics package available to Joyent Cloud customers that allows users to troubleshoot sources of latency with point-and-click ease. NodeFly users can identify latencies in their applications, then use Joyent Cloud Analytics to dig deeper into specific processes and identify problems across multiple types of operations. Joyent Cloud's four-dimensional heat maps highlight outlying bottlenecks that are usually hidden in line graphs that display averages.
