- Event-driven, Non-blocking I/O Model: The first reason is right there in what Node is – “non-blocking I/O” – it makes it efficient and highly performant for IoT Applications.
- Open Source: Node.js is an open-source juggernaut. Yes, a juggernaut. The future of Node seemed rocky just a couple of years back (and after we had selected) when a group of Node developers and contributors forked the Node.js source to form IO.js (look at that the name says it all!). It was few tense months for us as a small startup. However sanity prevailed, and IO.js and Node.js merged together as one under the Node.js Foundation.
- Industry Scale: Node is used by startups, makers, hackers all the way to the industry heavyweights such as Walmart, LinkedIn, Microsoft, PayPal, Yahoo, Netflix, Uber, Intel, IBM, RedHat etc. Take a look at the impressive list of the Node.js Foundation Members here: https://nodejs.org/en/foundation/members/
Node is ideally suited for end to end IoT Applications, and Movinture can provide you applications crafted specifically for your use cases and requirements.
