Cloud9 IDE and Cloud Foundry Team Up to Enable One-Click Deployment of Node.js Applications

Leading Open Source IDE and Leading Open Source Platform-as-a-Service Integrate to Offer New Opportunities to the Software Development Industry

SAN FRANCISCO, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud9 IDE (http://c9.io), the leading cloud-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that enables web and mobile developers to work together in remote teams anywhere and anytime, and Cloud Foundry (http://www.cloudfoundry.com), an open PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) operated by VMware that provides a choice of clouds, developer frameworks and application services, today announced a new integration partnership that enables free, one-click deployment of Node.js applications to any Cloud Foundry end point. A video demonstration of the Cloud9 IDE and Cloud Foundry one-click deployment can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXcLKR5LBPQ&feature=youtu.be.

"Cloud9 IDE is the premier online development environment for Node.js apps. It offers a powerful and seamless tool for developing with Node.js, providing the Cloud Foundry community with more freedom to focus on creating and deploying their code instead of dealing with the pain points of middleware and infrastructure set up," said James Watters, Director, Ecosystem Development, Cloud Foundry at VMware. "We've offered Node.js support from day one on the Cloud Foundry platform, and integration with Cloud9 IDE is an important contribution that will further empower developers with a frictionless way to build, debug, and run applications to any Cloud Foundry end point."

The Cloud9 IDE and Cloud Foundry integration marks a pivotal moment for the development community. By offering an open platform that removes system administration requirements from the development process, the developer-operations promise of a faster, easier way to build, test, deploy code, and scale applications can now truly be fulfilled. 

Key Benefits for Developers Include:

  • Premier development environment for Node.js apps
  • Free deployment of Node.js application to any Cloud Foundry instance
  • Easy interface for one-click deployment of Node.js applications
  • The convenience of accessible code from anywhere, anytime for efficient collaboration
  • Provides IDE capabilities without downloading an SDK and or command-line tools

Cloud9 IDE offers a variety of Node features, such as syntax highlighting, NPM support, code completion, testing and in-browser debugging. The company also hosts a variety of tools designed to support the growth of the Node.js community, including Nodebits.org, a blog featuring high-quality Node.js tutorials, and Nodemanual.org, Cloud9 IDE's Node documentation site.

"We're excited to bring together our leading open source developer environment with Cloud Foundry's open source PaaS offering," said Ruben Daniels, CEO and founder of Cloud9 IDE. "Software developers can now access superior cloud tooling capabilities on the Cloud Foundry platform for faster and easier deployment of their applications. We plan to offer a 'private cloud' version of Cloud9 IDE to the Cloud Foundry ecosystem in the future that will enable partners and customers to easily add our developer environment to their cloud."
