Node.js:

  • uses JavaScript as its scripting language and this unifies front-end and server-side web development.
  • is cross-platform framework that runs successfully on Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX.
  • contains a built-in HTTP server library that makes control over the work of web server not only possible, but also comfortable. Moreover, it doesn’t need any external software to run web server.
  • has fast, persistent I/O for real-time clients-servers communication.
  • uses the V8 engine for work with JavaScript. V8 is an engine for Chrome web browser created by Google and used to compile JavaScript very quickly and efficiently.
  • has an opportunity to support web projects of extremely high load with quick response.
  • has asynchronous functions. Most similar scripting languages force the program to wait till completion of each function, before proceeding with the next one. But with Node.js you don’t have to wait, processes are running in the background.
  • has high scalability. App built with Node.js enables huge amount of traffic and scales to millions of client connections because it uses event loop.
