Modulus Introduces Add-On Marketplace for Enhanced Node.js_Developer Experience

Modulus LLC, a Progress company and a leading provider of Node.js hosting and MongoDB, today announced that it is has released a new set of add-ons as part of its add-on marketplace. The marketplace is designed to make it easy for Node.js developers to build new functionality into their applications quickly.

One of the benefits of working with Modulus is that any customer can become an add-on provider through their Modulus account and the Add-On Provider Portal. There are five different add-ons now available from Modulus partners Keen IO, SendGrid, Iron IO, and MongoDB.

Partners

SendGrid is a cloud-based email service that gives businesses a cost efficient and simple way to send email. It provides reliable delivery, as well as scalability and real-time analytics to measure user engagement with the emails you send. It also uses flexible APIs to help make custom integration run smoothly.

SendGrid provided an add-on that delivers emails on behalf of companies that will help to increase deliverability and improve customer communications. Any integration with new or existing email systems is done through a SMTP or a REST API, SendGrid has a Node.js package that is open source and available on Github.

Keen.io collects and stores large amounts of event data. For example, it can take data from any occurrence or interaction that happens in an app throughout the day and store that data in a cloud database. Once stored in the cloud, the data can then be accessed and analyzed using queries that visualize it.

Keen IO provided an add-on that enables customers to track any event, including signups, upgrades, purchases, etc. and automatically ingest any new events and customers. There is an added query API, a large scalable event database, as well as analytics for customers. Customers can build an analytics tab right into an app with the Keen IO add-in and also extract data easily.

Iron.io is an application infrastructure as a service provider (IaaS) that gives immediate access to high-scale message queries, which allows customers to go from development to production very quickly. By doing so, it helps avoid any single points of failure, all while improving scale and the ability to utilize a dependable messaging system.

Iron IO added two new add-ons. The first is IRONWORKER which is a highly available and scalable task queue/ worker service that provides customers with workers at scale, painless setup, distributed processing, highly concurrent processing, a hosted environment and 23/7 chat support. Their other add-on is IRONMQ, which is a highly available elastic message queuing service that provides customers with: Instant and elastic message queuing, messaging at scale, a durable and secure service, the ability to use a language of their choice and 23/7 chat support.

MongoDB is an open-source document database and the leading NoSQL database. Written in C++, it provides many beneficial features, such as giving enterprise class support through training and consulting, storing files of any size without complicating your stack, scaling horizontally without compromising functionality, among others.

MongoDB is a Modulus add-on for creating and associating MongoDB Databases with your project.

Add-Ons

The new add-ons are now available for Modulus customers to use immediately.

Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT depl...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
"ReadyTalk is an audio and web video conferencing provider. We've really come to embrace WebRTC as the platform for our future of technology," explained Dan Cunningham, CTO of ReadyTalk, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at WebRTC Summit at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
