Progress Ups Developer Tools Cadre

Progress has announced the next generation of Modulus, a Node.js platform for hosting, deploying, scaling, and monitoring data-intensive real-time applications.

Modulus Public Cloud offerings are available in three servo sizes — 396MB, 512MB, and 1024MB — based on project resource needs and to fill hosting needs cost-effectively.

With Modulus Enterprise, users can launch across multiple servers, environments, and geographies — this grade meets evolving compliance standards such as PCI and HIPAA.

The Modulus Enterprise offering is purpose-built for hybrid infrastructure environments as well as a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model behind the firewall.

In related news, Progress has acquired Telerik.

Telerik's strength is in helping developers create custom user interfaces for their cloud, web-based, and on-premise applications.

Telerik offers a suite of UI development tools and application lifecycle management; a cloud-based platform, and a web content management system for creating and managing mobilized, enterprise websites.

Although Dr. Dobb's is disinclined to cover corporate news, this development means Progress now speaks to Telerik's 1.4 million strong developer community.

Progress CEO Phil Pead claims that with Telerik, Progress becomes a destination site for the "largest developer population on the planet" (as he puts it); i.e., ABL, .NET, Java, JavaScript, Node.js, and mobile.
