Nodejitsu Inc is a cloud platform as a service (PaaS). Nodejitsu is based on Node.js and serves Node.js applications on their platform. Nodejitsus headquarters are based in New York City, New York, with datacenters in the United States and Europe. Nodejitsu announced in February 2015 that they have been acquired by GoDaddy and will be exiting the PaaS business. Nodejitsu was founded in April 2010 (2010-04) by Charlie Robbins, Marak Squires, and Paolo Fragomeni. Coined "the original Node.js platform as a service", Nodejitsu partnered with Joyent on April 2, 2012 (2012-04-02) to "deliver best-of-breed infrastructure and platform services and software to the growing ranks of enterprise and public cloud users developing and deploying applications for Node.js." Joyent took a shot at a Node.js platform as a service previously, named No.de. As of November 7, 2012 (2012-11-07), Joyent no longer offers the No.de platform as a service, and instead recommends Nodejitsu.
