Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that it has joined the Node.js Foundation as a Platinum member, underscoring its commitment to developers, Node.js, and open source collaboration. As a Platinum member of the Foundation, Red Hat will have a seat on the Node.js Foundation Board of Directors and marketing committee, collaborating with other members to help promote and accelerate the development of the Node.js project and technology.

Node.js is becoming a platform of choice for many large enterprises, including those leveraging Red Hat mobile application development technologies.

Danese Cooper Chairperson of the Node.js Foundation Board

Node.js is an open source, server-side JavaScript runtime that has seen greater growth and adoption in enterprises over the last few years. Node.js has become an important technology for developers building high performance, low latency applications for web, mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT). The Node.js Foundation is represented by a broad spectrum of collaborators from software vendors, ISVs, end customers, and individual developers.

Established in June 2015 and run as a Linux Foundation collaborative project, the Node.js Foundation provides independent oversight over the adoption, development, and long-term stewardship of the Node.js project. The Foundation's open governance model and community collaboration aligns with Red Hat's dedication to transparency, openness, and community-powered innovation.

As a growing server-side framework for developers, Node.js plays an important role in Red Hat technologies that support mobile application development, such as the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform, and is available in OpenShift by Red Hat and Red Hat Software Collections.
