Progress Acquires Modulus; Enables Fast, Scalable Node.js and MongoDB App Development and Deployment
Progress Simplifies Deployment of Real-Time SaaS, Mobile, Social, Cloud and Big Data Apps with Comprehensive PaaS Capabilities
The Modulus Node.js and MongoDB cloud platform is designed to simplify and speed development of the new generation of scalable, always connected business and consumer apps that are constantly monitored and optimized for the best experience. The Modulus platform is ideally suited for real-time mobile, SaaS, social and Big Data apps that run across distributed devices and can seamlessly handle floods of data requests with built-in performance monitoring and analytics.
The Modulus platform is offered both as a hosted service and can also be deployed by enterprises in public, private and hybrid clouds as well as in an on-premise infrastructure. Modulus Enterprise is the first and only enterprise Node.js PaaS available as a licensed product, allowing businesses and ISVs to deploy next-generation apps faster and at a lower total cost. With Modulus, more time can be spent on creating and modernizing apps and less time worrying about deployment infrastructure.
With the addition of the Modulus capabilities into its PaaS portfolio, Progress now offers the industry's most comprehensive set of cloud, mobile, hybrid and on-premise development, data and business rules technologies.
James Governor, cofounder of industry analyst firm RedMonk, said, "Designed for high scale applications, Node.js is growing explosively, and is making an impact on enterprise IT. Progress is acquiring the Modulus PaaS as an on-ramp to reduce deployment and management hurdles associated with Node.js."
