Node.js has seen impressive adoption over the last four years and business critical applications using Node.js are now widely deployed.
IBM has made significant investments into the Node.js community. This has led to a growing number of users asking about the availability of formal support for the runtime. As a result IBM has announced the availability of two levels of commercial support for Node.js
IBM Foundation Support for Runtimes
The Node.js runtime support is available regardless of which modules you are using within your application.
Support is available for wherever you want to deploy the runtime: whether that’s on your own machines or in the cloud, and whether thatâ€™s IBM Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Heroku or somewhere else.
IBM Advanced Support for Runtime Frameworks
These provide you with the majority of what you need in order to be able to create, deploy, monitor and scale production-grade web applications and mobile back ends using Node.js
This is part of IBM’s commercial support for open source programming languages and their popular runtime frameworks, which currently covers Java, Node.js and Swift.
Note: A Node.js support offering for z/OS is already available.
