Joyent, Inc., the corporate steward of the Node.js open source project, has announced that it will move to establish a formal open governance model for Node.js with the creation of an independent foundation. Joyent will join forces with IBM, PayPal, Microsoft Corp, Fidelity and The Linux Foundation to establish the Node.js Foundation, which will be committed to the continued growth and evolution of Node.js, while maintaining a collaborative environment to benefit all users.

"With its proven success in mobile, web, service integration, IoT, robotics and other technology areas, Node.js is poised for even broader adoption. With this growth and continued adoption, we feel the project needs to evolve to attract additional contributions, foster a healthy ecosystem of technology and service providers and further enrich the community," said Scott Hammond, CEO of Joyent. "For us, the first step in this evolution was to create the Node.js Advisory Board to gather input from a diverse set of organizations and individuals in the Node.js community. We believe the creation of the Node.js Foundation is the logical next step in that process."

Node.js is the runtime of choice for high-performance, low latency applications, powering everything from robots to API engines to cloud stacks and mobile websites. Over the last two years, more and more large enterprises including IBM, PayPal and Microsoft have adopted Node.js as part of their enterprise fabric. Today, Node.js is used by tens of thousands of organizations in over 200 countries and amasses over 2 million downloads per month.
