Open-source, Javascript based runtime environment

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform, back-end JavaScript runtime environment that runs on the V8 engine

Using Node.js brings a multitude of benefits that companies such as Netflix are benefitting from. It complements large scale asynchronous applications with easy scaling, component driven model that means we can relax knowing that the engine behind our solutions is best in class.


Thousands of applications

Thousands of applications rely on Node.js which in turn uses code from Google's V8 engine. We can be confident in using tools built on the shoulders of giants!


Many are better than one

The principle of open source software is that everyone contributes back and we build on the collective. Node.js is one of the most well known examples of this principle in action and is regularly updated with new features and security fixes.



A key principle of Node.js is that it doesn't wait for a task to finish but keeps going onto the next task. This translates into high CPU efficiency and lower cost of running for our customers.
