Bringing Node.js and Drupal together
Acquia has unveiled a new application service for Acquia Cloud that makes it easy for digital IT teams to build and run JavaScript alongside Drupal. Acquia Cloud now supports the use of Node.js in addition to Drupal.
 
“Decoupled applications using JavaScript front ends are on the rise. They’re making it possible to create experiences with responsive, elegant, application-like behavior,” said Dries Buytaert, co-founder and CTO of Acquia. “To help our customers build such digital experiences with headless Drupal, we added Node.js support to Acquia Cloud.”
 
With Drupal, teams get the benefits of a scalable web CMS. With Node.js, developers will be able to build networked JavaScript applications that support front-end frameworks like Angular.js, Backbone.js, Ember.js, and Meteor.js. Together with Drupal they enable decoupled, or headless, applications where Drupal provides content management and JavaScript delivers interactive web and mobile experiences.
 
“Node.js is a lightweight, efficient development environment that our customers are using to build highly scalable web applications, and today it is fully integrated into Acquia Cloud,” said Christopher Stone, Acquia chief products officer. “Organizations can run their entire application on one platform with monitoring, alerting and support across the whole architecture.”
 
Acquia Cloud provides an open source stack on which to deploy and manage digital experiences. Developers will now be able to leverage tools enabling continuous delivery and integration across Node.js and Drupal from one user interface. IT professionals benefit from one secure, compliant cloud for Drupal, decoupled Drupal, and JavaScript. Teams can capitalize on the popularity of JavaScript to build and test solutions quickly. Acquia Cloud makes it easy to add new front-end technology to the stack without a replatform.
 
Developers gain a single platform that supports their preferred development language and tools to ensure application quality. Acquia Cloud also offers DevOps services that enable teams to automate their build, test and deployment processes. Additional layers of security are available through the Acquia Cloud Edge family of products for DDoS protection and content delivery.
