Real-time High-Performance Apps
Node.js is a good choice for applications that require real-time communication between users, clients, and servers across the web. It can power the back-end of real-time collaboration software and easily scale up to support a very large number of users.
Real-time communication requires fast, non-blocking input/output (I/O). In Node.js, the non-blocking I/O is based on an event loop and uses asynchronous callbacks for I/O. All I/O intensive tasks are passed to this event loop which efficiently manages asynchronous operations. This non-blocking programming model allows you to work with network traffic with a lower server footprint.
