After countless test servers, long nights of coding and a laundry list of open source projects the Nodejitsu private beta is officially live. It is a welcome coincidence that today is the 20th anniversary of the World Wide Web because we believe that node.js is the future of the web and web development. We are excited to share this initial look into our product.
Here's a few screenshot(s) of what it's like to deploy an application with Nodejitsu:

Configuring a node.js application
Starting, stopping, and restarting like woah
I'm sure a lot of people reading this article are thinking to themselves: "boo, another private beta for node.js hosting!" Trust us, we feel the same way! For now, however, we need time to test the platform with a manageable number of beta users so we can get it ready for prime time. There's a lot on our roadmap, but keep your eyes peeled for:
- Heuristic-based elastic process scaling
- Simple git based workflow
- A bigger and better marketplace of open source node.js applications
- Command-line interface for working with our API(s)
- More awesome features we haven't thought of yet!
Looking for a way to get to the top of the private beta invite list? We believe in rewards for merit based contributions to the node.js community. So do something awesome, then send us an email or find us on Twitter.
Check back soon for more Nodejitsu announcements. This is only the beginning!
