Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously accelerate the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides tiny bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, once any information is entered in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there are lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time web browser-based video games or instant messaging software, for instance, and many corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.

Accessing Node.js will be possible using a randomly generated port assigned by our cloud system.
