If you wanted your web application to support more users, you had to add more and more servers. Of course, this adds to a business’s server costs, traffic costs, labor costs, and more. Adding to those costs are the potential technical issues — a user can be using different servers for each request, so any shared resources have to be shared across all the servers.
Node.js development is apt for large, medium and start up enterprises. However, if you find yourself categorized under SME or start-ups, you may not find a better platform than this. Apart from enabling you to observe a website from different perspectives, Node.js also provides you with the provision of writing your own framework. This is something that really comes in handy when you are formulating websites and online stores. Devised to offer maximum throughput and efficiency, Node.js should be your first choice when it comes to building custom scalable network applications. With Node.js the overall time for development process is reduced to bear minimum and hence a quick product delivery is always on the cards.
Node is extremely well-designed for situations where you are expecting a high amount of traffic and the server-side logic and processing required isn’t necessarily large before responding to the client.
Node is intended to run on a machine and to serve some requests. Just like a normal web server, but with few differences. First of all Node is not only serving HTTP requests, but also TCP.
Whenever a request comes to the server, it tries to return the response as fast as possible. This is one of the main goals of every web developer team – to make the application as fast as possible. However in Node the things work different:
Here the server doesn’t return immediately the response, but holds as long as possible until some “event” occurs. You can thing of Node as a classical chat server. Until one of the peers doesn’t write a message, the other doesn’t receive anything.
