dotCloud Delivers on the Promise of Full-Stack Development With Support for Websockets, MongoDB 2.0 and Vertical ScalingPlatform Deepens Support for HTML5 and Moves Beyond Polyglot to Full-Stack Development (March 27, 2012)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- dotCloud announced today the immediate availability of support for WebSockets, MongoDB 2.0 and vertical scaling. Continuing to support application development from front to back, the support for new technologies speaks to the impact of HTML5 and the rise of the Full-Stack Developer. dotCloud is the only Platform as a Service (PaaS) to deliver production-grade, native support for multiple databases and languages, WebSockets, and both vertical and horizontal scaling in a single platform.
"I consider myself a Full-Stack developer, building an entire application in less than 2 weeks from front-end, to back-end, and to maintenance," said Alex Kehayias, who recently launched online magazine application Edorati on the dotCloud platform. "I need to have the flexibility of bringing a lot of things together, in any language, with any database, with the ability to scale, with no system admin and compelling pricing. With dotCloud I get all of this."
Continuing to pave the way in the PaaS space, new technology support on the dotCloud platform includes:
- WebSockets support - All dotCloud applications can now leverage WebSockets for real-time, bi-directional communication between the browser and the backend. With WebSockets, developers can now build rich, real-time interaction into their application.
- MongoDB 2.0 - A major update to our leading high-availability database service -- with guaranteed backwards compatibility. When MongoDB 2.0 was released, dotCloud's database team tested extensively to ensure a seamless upgrade to MongoDB 2.0.
- Vertical Scaling - dotCloud becomes the first PaaS to support both horizontal and vertical scaling. To scale their application, developers can choose between increasing concurrency (horizontal), larger memory allocation (vertical), or both.
"We believe there is a fundamental shift happening in the way applications are created: developers should be able to leverage any combination of languages and databases, integrated with a set of services, to build products from beginning to end," said Solomon Hykes, co-founder and CEO of dotCloud. "This is Full-Stack Development and we are focused on delivering that promise."
