Node.js Application Hosting

Node.js Logo

Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.


With OpenShift you can easily deploy and run Node.js applications using your favorite frameworks and databases. Want to run a Ghost blog backed by MySQL? Or maybe you're looking for Express and MongoDB? If it can run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 64bit, then it can run on OpenShift.
