Node.js development is designed to easily create fast and scalable web applications and develop solutions for high-traffic needs.
It offers a wide range of advantages:
- Supports data streaming: Node.js development reduces processing time while uploading audio and video files. Instead of buffering data, it outputs it in chunks, sending one chunk at a time to the end-user. These Node.js “streams” increase memory usage just by the size of the chunk and not the whole file, supporting real-time video or audio encoding.
- Lowers development costs: The serverless feature allows apps to scale automatically in response to traffic spikes. As a result, you only pay for services when the functions are used, not all the time, resulting in lower costs than with standard server architecture.
Additionally, with Node.js development, you can merge the frontend and backend teams into one smaller team of developers to work on the whole app.
Also, since Node.js is open source, you avoid licensing fees. Its extensive community gives you access to advise and tips from expert developers, including best practices for security, and provides a wide range of free customization features.
