The N|Solid runtime provides the following key benefits when running your Node.js apps:
- Secure: Protect your Node.js applications with N|Solid's real-time security vulnerability scanning, customizable security policies to lock down your runtime, and 24-hour guaranteed response to security updates.
- Reliable: Cut down time to issue resolution and identify bottlenecks in your application's code with N|Solid's enhanced CPU profiling and visualizations, heap snapshots, and exclusive asynchronous activity data.
- Extensible: Expand your Node.js toolset with N|Solid's customizable threshold monitoring and notifications, real-time application metrics, and integration tools to connect with APM and other monitoring tools.
Once this VM is provisioned, you can access the N|Solid Console dashboard by simply launching a browser and navigating to the VM's public IP. You will be prompted for credentials, which by default, expects "nsolid" as the username, and "nodesource" as the password (you can change these).
For all other management needs, you can simply SSH into the machine. For more information on how to get started, refer to the N|Solid on Azure tutorial.
