Develop Joyent Node.js SmartMachines out-performed Java by supporting 35x more open socket connections during internal testing at a major US carrier. Although Java is an established technology and other technologies (e.g., PHP, Python Ruby) have emerged since then, the magnitude of the performance difference is compelling. Since the major US carrier would only need 1 Joyent Node.js SmartMachine for 35 Java servers, a 97% cost savings may be realized when comparable hardware is used.

They just develop the software and let users decide on what type of PC, server or cloud provider it runs on. ” – GigaOM (March 22, 2011) =
