Progress extends modulus platform to support multiple languages

Zafirah Salim | May 6, 2015
Multiple language support is powered by Docker integration, giving the enterprise-level platform the ability to deploy and manage business and consumer apps.

Progress announced yesterday that Modulus, its Node.js platform as a service (PaaS), now supports multiple application languages utilising Docker, delivering a complete app deployment platform for the whole enterprise.

With the addition of multiple language support via Docker, the Modulus platform can better enable enterprise developers to use a single platform to manage multiple development projects globally.

According to a media statement by Progress, the Modulus platform now extends capabilities such as auto scaling, load balancing, dedicated, secure environments and a compliance-ready platform to other programming languages.

It added that enterprises need to have applications supported by multiple platforms. The ability to integrate on-premises information systems and cloud-based services is vital for long term growth.

"Multiple language support is not a nice to have, it is a requirement. Allowing developers to focus on building apps while eliminating the pain of deploying and managing the apps is key - it saves precious time, money and resources," said Stephen McNulty, Managing Director, Asia Pacific and Japan, Progress.

"The latest release of the Modulus platform leverages the popular Docker technology to bring the benefits of the Modulus platform to more development languages and expands the ability for Modulus platform clients to leverage the platform for their entire enterprise. It's the ideal solution for those looking to develop for the new generation of business and consumer apps," he added.

With this release, Progress has also made it easy to expand the Modulus platform with additional functionality, and supports the build processes in addition to straight deployment.
