Today cloud based integrated development environment Cloud 9IDE announced a partnership with VMware to enable one-click deployment of Node.js applications to any Cloud Foundry based platform-as-a-service environments. Through a simple interface within Cloud9, you can specify how many instances of an app to deploy, how much RAM to allocate and which version of Node.js to use.
Cloud9 already features Node.js syntax highlighting, the Node Package Manager (NPM) support and Node-centric debugging and testing. It already supports one-click deployment to Joyent and to Microsoft Azure, so one-click deploys to Node.js PaaSes is a logical next feature.
