Node.js - fast, scalable and agile network applications
Why have your app written in Node.js?
It is agile and scalable
It is fast and efficient
The inventor of Node.js, Ryan Dahl, intended to circumvent the common limitations of web servers, where large amounts of simultaneous connections can easily block the entire process. That’s why Node.js has adopted asynchronous communication. Multiple concurrent connections are handled in a non blocking manner, using callbacks and event loops. As an result, a single threaded node.js app can handle big traffic. Whilst working in cluster, this effect can be multiplied. Speed is also based on Google Chrome’s V8 engine, that compiles JS into native machine code. Although this doesn’t make Node.js an optimal tool for heavy computing, it is good fit for solutions with a lot of IO processing, saving a significant amount on hardware investment.

Node.js was initially intended to produce an environment in which Web and server applications could freely exchange data, whilst both could begin communicating as well. Although it is not the the only tool that does this well, Node.js has proven itself time and time again, powering real-time web apps with push capability, such as streaming services, collaborative and social tools with lovable UX. Web users usually appreciate its support for server-side React.js rendering - meaning that the website opens very quickly, when visited for the first time, without the long wait for massive libraries to load first. That makes Node.js vastly popupar among enterprises. According to Node.js Foundation survey 98% of Fortune 500 companies are using this platform.
