Progress today announced that its Modulus, Node.js platform as a service (PaaS), now supports multiple application languages utilising Docker.
With the addition of multiple language support via Docker, Modulus now allows developers to build, ship and run multi-language applications via one platform and manage multiple development projects globally. The Modulus platform now extends proven capabilities such as auto scaling, load balancing, dedicated, secure environments and a compliance-ready platform to other programming languages.
“Multiple language support is not a nice to have, it is a requirement. Allowing developers to focus on building apps while eliminating the pain of deploying and managing the apps is key – it saves precious time, money and resources, “said Karen Tegan Padir, President, Application Development and Deployment Business Unit, Progress. “The latest release of the Modulus platform leverages the popular Docker technology to bring the benefits of the Modulus platform to more development languages and expands the ability for Modulus platform clients to leverage the platform for their entire enterprise. It’s the ideal solution for those looking to develop for the new generation of business and consumer apps.”
With this release, Progress has also made it easy to expand the Modulus platform with additional functionality and supports for the build processes in addition to straight deployment. Progress also announced recently that Modulus platform users who are deploying in Asia-Pacific can now deploy using cloud infrastructure hosting provider DigitalOcean.
