Node.js can easily handle a large amount of connections simultaneously in a non-blocking manner while being employed as a server side proxy. It comes handy when you need to collect data from multiple source points and proxying different services with different response times. While dedicated proxy servers are in practice as well but node js has the advantage if the proxy infrastructure you are using is non-existent or if you need a solution for local development. This means you can build a client-side app with a Node.JS server for assets and proxifying/stubbing API requests while during development you can handle such interactions with a dedicated proxy services.
Prioritizing API Over Object DB
Node.JS is a perfect fit for building real time applications at the same time it is also the perfect fit for exposing data from object DBs. Json stored data assists to the pace of Node.js eliminating problems like impedance mismatch and data conversion. Method of Rails requires you to convert JSON to binary models and expose them back as JSON over the HTTP when the data is used by react.js, Angular,js. On the other hand Node.JS can simply expose your JSON objects with a rest API for the client to consume. This avoids the need for multiple conversions by using uniform data serialization format across the client, server and database.
Your database can become a bottleneck if you are receiving a high amount of concurrent data. Node.JS comes to the rescue by taking responsibility of the concurrent connections themselves.
However if the action of database access is blocking the operation, that could be a liability to the code. This is resolved by analyzing the clients behaviour before the data is written into the database. This enables efficient load handling as the system maintains its responsiveness even in the case of heavy load which is a smart alternative whenever the client doesn’t need a confirmation of the data write. Data is queued through some kind of caching or message queuing infrastructure by separate database batch write process.
System Monitoring Dashboard
The Node.js event loop allows us to create a powerful web-based dashboard that checks service status in an asynchronous manner and pushes data in clients using websockets. Intracompany and public service can be reported live and in real time using the brilliance of Node.js. This gives the comfort to any Network Operations Center (NOC) applications which serve monitoring purposes in telecommunications operator, cloud / network / hosting provider or any financial institution as they can all run on the open web stack backed by Node.JS and websockets rather than java and/or java applets.
Resolving Database Queries
We at BrainMobi have had several projects that have required the valuable expertise of Node.JS for their front end development. Along with the implementation practices of other frameworks makes our organization one of the top web application development company.
