Our Clients About Their Cooperation with Astec
What You Can Build with Node.js
Video Streaming Apps
Coming with a Stream API, Node.js can be used to build great video streaming applications, since it efficiently handles big size video files, and provides the data in small chunks called streams which are sent to the client on the fly. This kind of approach greatly improves performance. Node.js has been used by some of the biggest video streaming companies, including Netflix which reported an impressive 70% improvement in loading times ever since they have switched to the framework. If they trusted Node.js, then so should you!
Building a real-time chat app that sends and shows messages without refreshing the page is a piece of cake with Node.js! It’s all thanks to Socket.IO, a Node.js server that enables real-time bidirectional communication. It’s highly reliable as it allows establishing a connection even in the presence of load balancers, proxies, firewalls and antivirus software. Some other features include room support, auto-reconnection support, binary support, and a heartbeat mechanism. If you’re in need of a chat app, Node.js is the way to go.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Since Node.js is easy to integrate with IoT protocols, it is actively used in different IoT projects by many companies, from smaller ones like Asama Systems who used Node.js to create a micro-location system for tracking activity and movement of employees, to true giants like NASA. The latter utilizes Node.js to literally keep the lives of astronauts in space safe. Even if your project is not a matter of life or death, it’s still advisable to use a top notch solution like Node.js.
Real-Time Collaboration Tools
Trello is a project management list-making application used by some 50 million people all around the world. It uses a complicated event-driven technology which handles many open connections at a time. Its developers decided to use Node.js for its server side, mainly because of its high performance and amazing capabilities.
Complex Single-Page Applications
No matter what your single-page application looks like, and what’s it for, it can still benefit from using Node.js. Its asynchronous data flow and non-blocking I/O operations event loop make it possible to receive data without the need to refresh the page. Needless to say, Node.js has been used in a wide variety of apps among which LinkedIn is perhaps one that profited from it the most, resulting in two to the mind-numbing ten times faster performance as compared to the previous Ruby on Rails implementation from before the switch.
Thanks to the microservices architecture of Node.js, it’s easy to create and maintain an application built of single, independent, and scalable units. A prizewinning Frappka app powered by Node.js is a great example of this. Developed for the convenience store chain Zabka, the app comes with a set of store management features for franchisees, like generation of detailed reports regarding given stores. Thanks to the use of Node.js, a powerful, efficient app has been created, which resulted in it being awarded not one, but two Mobile Trend Awards.

We have prepared answers to some of the most common questions asked about Node.js application development:
Is Node.js good for enterprise applications?
Is Node.js a good choice for backend development?
Is Node.js the right choice for e-commerce?
Lately, more and more people have been choosing online stores over traditional ones, and this trend is only going to deepen. Luckily for us, Node.js is well suited for e-commerce apps as it comes with a humongous registry of thousands of easily available modules that can be found useful when developing an app. Such richness encourages developers to be more creative and deliver amazing solutions to meet clients‘ satisfaction. Thanks to the assistance of a variety of Node.js e-commerce platforms, a wide range of customer user interfaces as well as support for and integration with payment systems is readily available. Out-of-the-box solutions to common e-commerce development problems help developers to focus on other important aspects such as writing high quality code and delivering an app that meets customer expectations. Since whenever money is involved, security is of highest concern, it’s good to know that Node.js provides security mechanisms, like SQL Injection prevention, so that customers’ data and money always remain safe. Wrapping up, Node.js is a rich, flexible and safe choice for e-commerce.
Is Node.js good for microservices?
Every application starts small as an MVP (Minimum viable product) and then turns into a fully fledged project. Since it usually happens faster than expected, it’s more than likely that the project will quickly become complex, and balancing its performance while still adding top notch features will prove challenging. Apps built as monoliths are clunky and hard to maintain. Thankfully, Node.js was created with microservices in mind. Its microservices-based architecture ensures both vertical and horizontal scaling that boosts performance, I/O-bound tasks result in low resource footprint, and better structure makes new features easier to understand, design and implement. With Node.js, even the most complex products can be broken into microservices and become manageable, making the app reliable, stable, and a true pleasure to use.
