Node JS Development: Why do IBM, Paypal, and SAP use it
Understanding Node.JS App Development Tool for Real-Time Coding Applications
Paypal, Airbnb, SAP, Uber and even NASA have used Node.JS at some point. Let’s find out why, where and how Node.JS is used.
Node.JS is an open-source runtime environment that uses a unique I/O model to perform tasks that are scalable and require real-time responses.
Advantages of Node.JS are countless but here are a few reasons why it can be a good choice:
Single Programming Language for Front and Back
It is Fast and Scalable
Rich Node.JS Development Community
Node.JS promotes sharing with Node Package Manager or NPM. NPM allows developers to share, correct and reuse each other’s programmers with ease. Node.JS has an active community and can be considered as a suitable alternative to Python, Ruby, Java, and C#.
Can be Used on Multi-Platform
It has a real cross-platform language that allows Node.JS to be used on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
Now let’s answer our second question where companies use Node.JS.
A lot of companies engage Node.JS as a server-side proxy to handle a large number of simultaneous connections in a non-blocking manner. It can also be used to gather data from numerous source points.
Being typically real-time and multi-user application which uses high traffic, the chat is a perfect example where companies use Node.JS.
While HTTP requests and their responses are considered as isolated events in most traditional platforms one of the great features of Node.JS is to stream a file while it is being uploaded. This can be used for live audio/video streaming applications (for example Netflix) as well.
Broker’s trading software needs to be a real-time tool that tracks livestock prices, performs calculations and modifies different graphs. Node.JS finds its application in a wide range of trading software.
