SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AppDynamics Inc., the next-generation application performance management solution that simplifies the management of complex apps, today announced the acquisition of Nodetime, the premier solution for monitoring Node.js applications. This acquisition further cements AppDynamics' role as the leading end-to-end APM provider for modern applications, and fits into their mobile strategy outlined earlier this year.
Nodetime is one of only a handful of monitoring tools for Node.js, and is currently the only mature solution on the market. Over three thousand organizations use Nodetime to monitor their Node.js applications, including Conde Nast, Kabam and Change.org, and they have an existing partnership with Heroku.
"We're very excited to see AppDynamics pursuing the latest and most innovative technologies with this acquisition," said Nic Johnson, Web Architect at FamilySearch, a customer of both AppDynamics and Nodetime. "Both Nodetime and AppDynamics are essential parts of our toolset, and we're very excited to see them united in the same product and the same great company. This will mean great things both for AppDynamics customers and for the Node.js community as a whole."
Node.js is rapidly becoming one of the most popular platforms for building fast, scalable web applications. According to a W3C tech survey, adoption of Node.js doubled in the last year alone, and the Node.js application server is currently the 14th most popular in the world. Today a range of organizations use Node.js to power their mobile applications, including LinkedIn, Walmart and Klout.
"We're proud to be a part of the vibrant and rapidly growing Node.js community," said Jyoti Bansal, Founder and CEO of AppDynamics. "Many of our customers have requested Node.js monitoring, and it's clear to us that Node.js is rapidly becoming the next big thing in software.
