Principal PM Manager, JavaScript Platform and Tools

At Node.js Interactive 2017, starting tomorrow in Vancouver, BC, nearForm and Microsoft are announcing a new alliance to help customers migrate Node.js apps to Azure, and provide enterprise-grade support for them. By partnering with nearForm we are now bringing their multi-year expertise in architecting, designing and supporting Node.js apps to developers as they adopt Azure and build on top of our cloud.

Every day, more and more Node.js developers choose to build and deploy on top of Azure, and Microsoft continues in its commitment to make investments in the area. The recent announcements of Azure App Service on Linux and Azure Web App for Containers, combined with support for Node.js across Azure Functions, Azure Container Service and pre-provisioned VM images, provide developers a great range of choices to host their Node.js apps and services across several cloud compute models offered by Azure.

nearForm Migration and Developer Support Services

nearForm is recognized as a leader in architecting and developing full-stack JavaScript solutions. With world-class teams of software architects, designers, developers, DevOps engineers and open source tooling experts, nearForm takes its clients worldwide through a current-architecture review workshop to a fully deployed high-performance new stack on Azure in a short amount of time.

As part of the alliance, Microsoft and nearForm are announcing today the nearForm Migration and Developer Support services, which enables customers to confidently move to the cloud with Node.js on Azure. Beyond the migration of technology, nearForm can help businesses migrate to offering new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) capabilities: the nearForm design sprint is an intensive engagement which enables customers to generate a prototype of new business ideas in just five days. Customers can then work with nearForm's Solutions teams to turn the prototype into a production system.

nearForm's Developer Support service ensures that teams have direct access to the most knowledgeable Node.js developers in the industry, including Node.js Core contributors. This level of expertise can guide customers step-by-step through the process.
