As Node.js helps create scalable tools and networks, it seems appealing to enterprise owners. It is a high-performance, super-fast, and lightweight web development framework that lets developers perform asynchronous programming. With this, developers are free to execute numerous actions simultaneously, a perk of being a serverless platform.
Node.js is known for its better scalability, optimized costs, and enhanced performance.
A team of web development experts can save a lot of time using ready-to-run and reusable node module components. However, it may not be the most sought-after platform or framework for all, but it has left behind other frameworks in terms of web traffic (for which everyone website owner cares). According to web technology survey reports, high-traffic websites use Node.js rather than other web development platforms such as Apache, Nginx, Microsoft IIS, Cloudflare server, and Lightspeed.
Node.js is one of the most suitable platforms for web development due to its flexibility and versatility. Further, it comes with different uses that most platforms do not offer.
Here are some of its popular uses.
Streaming- Many audio or video content files are uploaded on streaming platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube. But they need to be processed to be available for viewers. The processing starts when it has been uploaded on the web. However, using Node.js, they can be processed and uploaded simultaneously. This publishes content fast and saves time.
