Scalability and Architectural Patterns
The characteristics of Node.js are perfect for the implementation of distributed systems, ranging from a few nodes to thousands of nodes communicating through the network: Node.js was born to be distributed.
Unlike in other web platforms, scalability is a topic that gets explored rather quickly in Node.js while developing an application. This is often because of the single-threaded nature of Node.js, which is incapable of exploiting all the resources of a multi-core machine. But this is just one side of the coin. In reality, there are more profound reasons for talking about...
