Node.js @ Neev Node.js and AWS... Can't get better With Amazon Web Services (AWS), it is easy to build horizontally scalable applications to support the growing needs of the business. But allocating more hardware and computing devices to your applications and business is not always the best idea. AWS services when used smartly can give more returns for the investment made. Choosing the right framework for your application development goes a long way in determining how you use your hardware resources. Today, we have a wide range of frameworks to choose from. Neev's expertise in multiple frameworks can help you choose the right one keeping in mind your forecasted user base and business growth. Neev's expertise in finding the right architecture for scalability and efficiency would not only help you deliver your business better but also would reduce the resources spent for it. Talking about the right frameworks, Node.js offers a platform to build fast, scalable network applications easily. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient. At its heart, Node.js uses ‘callback’ for all the activities that need any I/O to be done, be it fetching data from DB, or a disk or the internet. ‘Callback’ lessens the waiting time of the CPUs for some I/O operation to complete and thus can serve some other requests. The popular paradigm "You don't wait on me, I will call you" is perfect for cloud services where resources can be added and removed anytime. AWS best practices heavily promote stateless applications so that applications can take full advantage of their auto-scaling and load balancing features. Node.js, when combined with the awesome infrastructure of Simple Queue Service (SQS) and Simple Notification Service (SNS), S3, RDS and DynamoDB, provide an unfailing platform which can be fully leveraged by Node.js’s non-blocking I/O architecture. Neev Technologies has implemented Node.js for a major car rental business in Bangalore and currently employs ExpressJS (a web framework based on Node.js) for its video content delivery platform.
