An AWS Serverless API
Node has been rather a game changer in the web application world. One of the reasons for this is the lightweight hardware specifications that are needed to run a Node web server. Traditionally, web server engines, such as Apache, or Microsoft's IIS web server, needed some pretty beefy servers in order to accommodate thousands of HTTP requests per second.
Node, as we have discussed, uses a single-threaded architecture, and each instruction that needs to wait, for any reason, is put onto a queue for processing at a later time. This means that the server is only running a single thread of execution at any particular time, and therefore can handle a large number of simultaneous requests with a surprisingly little amount of CPU or RAM. In the modern age of cloud computing, this means that many more Node web servers can be run on a single piece of physical hardware, compared to other traditional web servers.
