Cars.com and Dynatrace join the Foundation to support the stability and success of the Node.js platform
New Node.js Foundation Members Drive Enterprise Growth
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 17, 2016 — The Node.js Foundation, a community-led and industry-backed consortium to advance the development of the Node.js platform, today announced Cars.com and Dynatrace have joined the Foundation as Silver Members.
More about today’s new Node.js Foundation members:
Launched in 1998 and headquartered in Chicago, Cars.com is a leading online destination that offers information from experts and consumers to help car shoppers and owners buy, sell and service their vehicles. The site offers millions of new and used vehicle listings, an extensive database of consumer reviews, research and pricing tools, unbiased expert content, and multiple options to sell a vehicle. Cars.com uses Node.js to help scale its high-trafficked website to meet its users’ demands and service expectations.
“Prior to Node.js, we were using older content management solutions that were not allowing us to effectively meet the demands of Cars.com, which receives around 30 to 35 million visits to its web properties each month,” said Darrell Pratt, director of software development at Cars.com. “Node.js provides the necessary utility to allow us to grow and change to a microservice infrastructure. There is so much potential in the future of Node.js through its community, extensive libraries, and excellent tooling, and we are excited to help fuel that growth through the Node.js Foundation.”
Dynatrace, a digital performance management software company, believes Node.js is a core component for its enterprise customers. As more enterprises begin to go through digital transformations and implement microservice-type architectures, Node.js is a key technology that ties frontend and backend systems together to provide an end-to-end view of application performance with the help of Dynatrace offerings.
“Digital transformation is constantly changing how companies do business, something we see first-hand working directly with enterprises to meet their performance monitoring needs,” said Alois Reitbauer, chief technology strategist at Dynatrace. “Node.js very often plays a key role in their transformation process, so we are excited to actively contribute to the Node.js platform and help developers improve their monitoring capabilities.”
“By joining the Node.js Foundation, companies are investing in the stability of Node.js and helping to accelerate the widespread adoption and development of Node.js,” said Mikeal Rogers, community manager at the Node.js Foundation. “New members like Cars.com and Dynatrace are incredibly important to the Foundation's work to develop services, education, training and events that support the needs and demands of enterprise users.”
The Node.js Foundation will be holding Node.js Interactive Europe in Amsterdam September 15-18; and Node.js Interactive North America in Austin, Texas, November 29 - December 2. This is the only vendor-neutral event that offers an in-depth look at the future of Node.js from the developers who are driving the code forward. Node.js Core contributors will offer insights into new developments, while enterprise users and vendors will share best practices around tools, training and other services needed to optimize Node.js.
Node.js is used by tens of thousands of organizations in more than 200 countries and amasses more than 4 million active users per month. It is the runtime of choice for high-performance, low latency applications, powering everything from enterprise applications, robots, API engines, cloud stacks and mobile websites.
The Foundation is made up of a diverse group of companies including Platinum members IBM, Intel, Joyent, Microsoft, PayPal and Red Hat. Gold members include GoDaddy and NodeSource, and Silver members include Apigee, AppDynamics, Cars.com, Codefresh, DigitalOcean, Dynatrace, Fidelity, Google, Groupon, nearForm, New Relic, npm, Opbeat, RisingStack, Sauce Labs, SAP, StrongLoop (an IBM company), Sphinx, YLD, and Yahoo!.
