StrongLoop is a Silicon Valley-based company founded in 2013 by engineers who have been contributing to Node.js since 2011. StrongLoop is the leading contributor to Node.js v0.12. The primary use for Node.js is creating “front edge” APIs – the APIs that mobile applications connect to for retrieving backend information. For developers creating these APIs StrongLoop offers an API framework, mobile services like Push and Geopoint, SDKs for iOS, Android & HTML5, and connectors to backends like Oracle. For organizations who deploy Node.js, StrongLoop offers leading DevOps tooling for clustering, monitoring and optimizing Node applications. StrongLoop runs on all major operating systems and eight clouds including Amazon, Heroku, OpenShift and Rackspace.
StrongOps is a performance monitoring and DevOps console for clustering, optimizing and debugging Node applications. Specifically, StrongOps features CPU, Memory and Heap profiling plus memory leak detection, cluster management and runtime operations.
StrongLoop leverages the expertise of its developers with deep knowledge of Node’s internals to offer companies technical support, consulting, training and certification around Node core, dependant libraries like libuv and certified npm modules.
