Google Adds Support for Node.js on its Developer App Engine Platform by Mike Whetley

Earlier this week Google announced support for Node.js on its App Engine cloud-based web framework for building software applications hosted on Google infrastructure. This announcement allows developers to deploy applications built using Node.js to the App Engine environment, creating a number of benefits including faster deployment and automatic scaling of applications!

Google product manager Steven Giannini was quoted as saying, “Node.js apps will scale instantaneously depending on web traffic; App Engine automatically scales to zero when there are no incoming requests and quickly scales up the number of instances when traffic increases. You can serve your application under a secure HTTPS URL with your own custom domain. In addition, we take care of security updates so that you don’t have to, automatically updating the operating system and Node.js minor and patch versions.”

Google also said it has made many of its cloud applications available to use via Node.js apps via a series of client libraries.

Google is All About Getting People on the Internet, and Node.js is Part of This Effort  by Node.js Foundation

 Justin Beckwith, Lead Product Manager on Cloud Languages wanted to get Google more involved with Node.js, so he began with having Google join the Node.js Foundation and eventually have a seat on the board of directors for the foundation (held by Sarah Novotny, head of Open Source Strategy). Over the years, Google and Node.js have built a strong relationship, and as Beckwith describes in this blog's video, Google's key mission is to get as many people on the internet as possible and Node.js has a great deal to do with that! According to Beckwith, Node.js gives developers the opportunity to build high-performance applications and gets those applications running on the web in a scalable way that delivers endless value to the end users.
