We have expanded our data layer. You can now provision a MongoDB for your apps the same way you have been doing for CouchDB and Redis. This significantly expands the range of apps you can run on our platform without relying on third parties.
The new docker based architecture is now up and running. We are confident that the new platform can cope with future demand for Node.js apps and databases.
For those who wonder why our hosting service is not yet generally available, we are having scaling issues. The original Nodester ran on one big instance where Node.js servers used a socket/port in a jail and Nodejitsu's node-http-proxy servers where routing the traffic to the servers.
You can now access your repositories hosted on Cloudnode over HTTPS. This feature is now generally available and the recommended way. If you are happy with Git over SSH you can still use it. In the application details both clone URLs for SSH and HTTPS are shown.
Until now this blog's search had been powered by Tapir. A great solution, but it stopped working a few weeks ago, probably due to moving this blog to HTTPS.
