Google debuts Node.js beta on its App Engine
Google announces partnership with NodeSource
In Brief Google has added support for Node.js on its marmitey App Engine on a managed VM beta basis.
The far-from-universally adored App Engine intends to offer an easy service for developers to "build, deploy, manage and automatically scale services" on Wonka's infrastructure.
At the early stages of development, server access is being extended to Express, Hapi, Parse-server, "or any other web server" for enthused onlookers, while data may be stored on MongoDB, Redis, or the Choccy Faccy's own cloud datastore.
Google said: "The runtime is flexible enough to manage most applications and services — but if you want more control over the underlying infrastructure, you can easily migrate to Google Container Engine or Google Compute Engine for full flexibility and control."
The Chocolate Factory said it "make[s] a great match for running enterprise Node.js applications". ®
