Cloud provider Joyent is launching no.de, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) for Node.js. No.de  is powered by Joyent's Smart Platform infrastructure and works much like Google App Engine, Heroku, Engine Yard and other popular platform services out there.

No.de is a trial run for Joyent; it's online just for the weekend for the Node.js Knockout coding contest. Joyent CTO Jason Hoffman said in an interview that they have about 500 developers signed up to use no.de over the weekend. He expects it will be fun, along with helping to prove out the idea of a node.js platform.

"We think this could be one of the biggest things in development in quite some time," he said, although he was careful to say that the project is definitely under development for the time being.

What Joyent's new PaaS means

So basically, who cares? It's an instance of an obscure coding engine that is hosted by a second-tier (cloud) hoster. That's not going to turn the Web application world on its ear, right?

Or maybe it will. Start here for a primer on Node.js. An outgrowth of Google's V8 JavaScript project, Node.js calls itself "Evented I/O for V8 JavaScript." Essentially, it makes it very, very easy to run so-called real-time Web applications written in JavaScript by staggering inputs and output requests from target and server asynchronously. Sorry, come again?

"Its orders of magnitude are more efficient," Hoffman said, than running a Web application the way its usually done. This is including Google App Engine or running optimized servers on Amazon Web Services, the company claims.

That means Joyent can give you ten times, or maybe 100 times (two orders of magnitude), the performance of your Web app for the same amount of infrastructure. Hoffman explains that Web applications are expected to do many, many things at once these days, and the bottleneck isn't servers or bandwidth; it's transactions piling up.
