GoDaddy acquires an interesting Node.js-centric startup

GoDaddy is continuing its effort to upgrade its infrastructure into something more modern by acquiring Nodejitsu, a Node.js-centric platform-as-a-service provider, the web-hosting company announced today. GoDaddy did not disclose the financial terms of the deal, which was rumored to close this week, but a spokesperson said that four Nodejitsu employees will be coming on board. Given the popularity of Node.js, which just got its own open-source foundation, the deal makes sense for GoDaddy, which has spent the past couple of years modernizing its technology through acquisitions, mobile development and even the creation of its own content-delivery network.
