In the previous post, Basic Node.js and Backbone.js application I and Basic Node.js and Backbone.js application II, about how to build an easy Node.js and Backbone.js application we discuss about which technologies we were going to use and after that we built a simple web application along with some REST API such as Twitter and the Yahoo Geoplanet API.
In this third post we speak about how to deploy our recent Backbone.js application to the cloud. I decided to use third of the most used PaaS (Platform as a Service) nowadays: Heroku, Cloud Foundry and AWS. Yes, I know that AWSis considered for many people an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service).
I was also interested in giving a try to nodejitsu a specific platform to Node.js environment that belongs to Joyent. Unfortunately, they are currently in Beta and it seems imposible to get a invitation in the last couple of weeks. I’d like to upload the application to Windows Azure that is growing fast lately. I might update this post as long as I deploy the application to other PaaS. Meanwhile, we’re going to deploy to the three platform already commented.
