The rising demand for Node.Js app development
Some of the popular names in the corporate world that made use of the next-generation Node.Js are:

Some of the key advantages of using Node.js:
Powerful technology stack
Blazing fast processing and event-driven model
There is no denying the fact that Node.js is lightning fast. The main reason why Node.js is considered superfast is a V8 engine and non-blocking Input/output and asynchronous request management feature.
In the above graph, V8 is demonstrating fantabulous performance enhancements every year, and Node.js draws out a whole bunch of advantages from it.
Non-blocking Input/Output and asynchronous request management:
This feature of Node.js equipped it with the power of processing each and every request without much delay. When it comes to backend development, synchronous processing concludes that code is implemented in a progression. Thus, every single request tends to impede a thread thereby putting other requests in a queue to wait until the processing of the request isn’t finished.
On the flip side, the asynchronous processing permits the processing of more number of requests without even thwarting (non-blocking I/O) thread. Once the request has been completed, there are chances that it can drive out a callback and carry on attending incoming requests. This further enables the Node.js technology to capitalize on every single threading, leading to abridged reply time and synchronized processing.
Now, let’s try to understand the event-driven model. When a single programming language is used for both client/server-side, reconsolidation transpires real fast, which is principally beneficial for event-driven and real-time apps. As a result of the asynchronous, non-blocking, and single-threaded attributes of Node.js, it has definitely become the most anticipated preference majorly for online games, chats, video seminars, or any other related solutions in which data is consistently updated.
Many leading names in the industry swapped their existing technologies to Node.js applications and experienced substantial improvements. For instance, PayPal reported having around 35% drops in response time after they migrated from Java.
Resilient Technology for Micro-Services
As Node.js is a feather-light technology, it is considered to be the most suitable architecture for the Microservices. It is basically described as a method put into practice to build a single app into a pool of small services, which is independently operating in their own process and connecting with the feather-light weight tools, an HTTP based API. Basically, the application logic is fragmented further into small components (Microservices) rather than creating a single massive core. This way you will be able to lay a better underpinning for future expansion. Thus, it is much simpler to incorporate more microservices in addition to the prevailing ones, instead of integrating supplementary features with the rudimentary app functionality.
Node.Js development company in India make use of this technology for developing and seamlessly integrating microservices solutions. As per the survey conducted by Docker, it has been revealed that approximately50% of the respondents are making use of the microservice-based technologies in order to create Node.js web applications. Walmart has lately known to make a big switch to microservices architecture with the use of the Node.js and you will be amazed to know the instant benefits of making such a business-critical decision. Just have a look at the benefits below:
Another good example of how Node.js is outshining in the highly competitive digital market in terms of performance is the illustration of GoDaddy. While running the ad campaign for the SuperBowl, the company did effectively handle the influx of around 10,000 users’ requests per seconds without facing any downtime simply by using around 10% of the hardware and all the credit of this goes to none other than Node.js.
