· Cloud Zone

The Cloud Zone is brought to you in partnership with Iron.io. Discover how Microservices have transformed the way developers are building and deploying applications in the era of modern cloud infrastructure.

Over at the Cloud Foundry blog, Raja Rao has published a detailed tutorial about scaling real-time apps on Cloud Foundry.  Here's a little of the introduction:

Common applications being built on Node.js like social networking and chat require real-time scaling capabilities across multiple instances. Developers need to deal with sticky sessions, scale-up, scale-down, instance crash/restart, and more. Cloud Foundry PaaS provides a ready platform to achieve this quickly.

The following blog post will walk you through deploying and managing real-time applications on Cloud Foundry using common Node.js examples and Redis key-value store capabilities.
