Node.js Introduction
Node.js Growth
By many measures, Node.js is the fastest growing and most significant development
language right now. With 4 million users and an annual growth rate of 100%, Node.js is
truly everywhere.
4
Technology Introduction
Node.js is the JavaScript runtime of
choice for high-performance, low
latency applications, powering
everything from enterprise applications,
robots, API engines, cloud stacks and
mobile websites.
It uses an event-driven, non-blocking
I/O model that makes it lightweight,
efficient and highly-performant even
under extreme load.
Node.js In Demand
• Node.js is the only language listed on UpWork’s Top 10 most
wanted IoT Developer Skills
• Node.js ranks among the Top 10 languages for full stack, front
end and back end developers surveyed by StackOverflow in
their 2016 developer survey
• Only Android ranks higher than Node.js in Most Wanted* tech
by StackOverflow
* % of developers who are not developing with the language or tech but have expressed interest in
developing with it
Node.js Foundation - A Linux Foundation
Project
Mission: Enable widespread adoption and help accelerate
development of Node.js and other related modules

Node.js And Performance
Node.js and Performance
Under high load (high concurrency), Node.js maintains high throughput
and low latency
Three factors underpin Node’s high performance:
1. The V8 JavaScript engine, upon which Node.js is based, is highly
optimized for performance by Google, who continues to invest heavily
in advancing V8’s performance
2. JavaScript/Node.js events are lightweight, while threads are
heavyweight. Consequently, Node.js is inherently more performant
under load than monolithic designs (this article offers a nice recap)
3. Node.js is container-ready, which simplifies the move to cloud and
microservices architectures (Richard Rodger, author of The Tao of
Microservices, explains)
Node.js and Performance
In moving from monolithic Java server architecture to Node.js, Netflix improved
performance and reduced infrastructure costs
• Reduced start-up time from 40 mins to sub 1 minute
• Reduced the number of EC2 instances on Node compared with the legacy Java
stack by 75%, while serving the same number of subscribers at lower latencies
Node.js and Performance
Rolled out global site rebrand in 1 hour
Node.js and Performance
PayPal’s Node.js app doubled the number of requests per second and reduced
response times by 35% versus previous Java version
Node.js and Performance
Groupon’s Node.js implementation reduced page load times by 50%
Node.js and Performance Diagnostics
Also see best Practices from Netflix’s @yunonx on maintaining high performance in large-scale production Node.js Applications
Building Node.js Applications for visibility, live tracing and
debugging is aided by advancements in Node.js Core and in the
ecosystem around it (e.g. Restify, Bunyan, etc.)
The Node.js Core Diagnostics Working Group is working to
ensure Node.js provides a set of comprehensive, documented,
extensible diagnostic protocols, formats, and APIs to enable tool
vendors to provide reliable diagnostic tools for Node.js
Work is divided into the following domains:
• Tracing
• Profiling
• Heap and Memory Analysis
• Step Debugging
Node.js and Performance Debugging
For problems you can’t diagnose expediently, or issues such as memory
leaks, do post-mortems
1. Capture a core dump of running process at any time in production to capture all of the state of
the process and then reboot it
2. There is now a broad set of tools that can be used: mdb_v8, llnode and IBM's IDDE
3. This methodology offers Node.js Engineers several advantages, including
a. Allows services to stay up while developers investigate the problem (increased
availability)
b. Allows several developers to investigate the same problem not at the same time (easier
collaboration)
c. Allows developers to investigate issues at any time that is convenient for them (easier
workflow)
Also see the Node.js Core Post-Mortem Working Group and best Practices from Netflix’s @yunonx on
maintaining high performance in large-scale production Node.js Applications
Node.js And Customer
Experience
Node.js and Customer Experience
• Today’s digital consumers
expect all available data to be
leveraged in App instantly to
make their experience effortless
• This means an API-first strategy
• No language is better than
Node.js for taking advantage of
the explosion of API data

Node.js Excels for Data-intensive Apps
• The richer an app’s API layer becomes,
the better suited it is to Node.js
• Node.js apps can handle thousands of
concurrent connections
• Open-source modules provide
performant DB interaction out of box
• SDKs available for consuming most
third-party services and applications

Node.js And Productivity
Node.js and Productivity
Node.js for frontend and server
side, and on devices where
appropriate, can increase
developer productivity and
improve developer job
satisfaction
These improvements translate
directly to the bottom line
Sources: PayPal, Capital One, Skycatch, Fusion Marketing
Node.js and Productivity
Improved developer satisfaction means less
turnover, a better employer brand and easier
recruitment
• Node.js Everywhere increases developers’ internal
mobility, thus heading off one of the top reasons
developers leave - namely lack of new
challenges/monotonous work/feeling stuck
• Node.js Everywhere also appeals to many
developers’ desire to use more JavaScript, which
is described as a fun and flexible language
Node.js and Productivity
Node.js Everywhere makes it easy for developers to implement features end-to-end,
reducing context switches and handoffs between front-end and back-end
developers
Prior to replacing Java with Node.js on the server side, the Netflix UI team had to write
many things twice and maintain separate toolchains
Conclusion
Node.js has helped transform the app
dev landscape at leading organizations
like Netflix, Capital One, Walmart, NASA,
GoDaddy, PayPal - helping them keep
pace with innovation in APIs, Web,
mobile, devices and customer
expectations
With its strong ecosystem and massive
repository of non-blocking modules,
Node.js can help your organization too
Thank you!

The Enterprise Case for Node.js

  • 1. The Enterprise Case for Node.js V1 July, 2016
  • 2. Table of Contents • Node.js Introduction – Technology – The Node.js Foundation – Industry Backing • Selling Node.js in Your Company – Performance – Customer Experience – Productivity • Conclusion • Appendix A: Node.js Enterprise Tooling and Services Directory
  • 4. Node.js Growth By many measures, Node.js is the fastest growing and most significant development language right now. With 4 million users and an annual growth rate of 100%, Node.js is truly everywhere. 4
  • 5. Technology Introduction Node.js is the JavaScript runtime of choice for high-performance, low latency applications, powering everything from enterprise applications, robots, API engines, cloud stacks and mobile websites. It uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight, efficient and highly-performant even under extreme load.
  • 6. Node.js In Demand • Node.js is the only language listed on UpWork’s Top 10 most wanted IoT Developer Skills • Node.js ranks among the Top 10 languages for full stack, front end and back end developers surveyed by StackOverflow in their 2016 developer survey • Only Android ranks higher than Node.js in Most Wanted* tech by StackOverflow * % of developers who are not developing with the language or tech but have expressed interest in developing with it
  • 7. Node.js Foundation - A Linux Foundation Project Mission: Enable widespread adoption and help accelerate development of Node.js and other related modules 7
  • 11. Node.js and Performance Under high load (high concurrency), Node.js maintains high throughput and low latency Three factors underpin Node’s high performance: 1. The V8 JavaScript engine, upon which Node.js is based, is highly optimized for performance by Google, who continues to invest heavily in advancing V8’s performance 2. JavaScript/Node.js events are lightweight, while threads are heavyweight. Consequently, Node.js is inherently more performant under load than monolithic designs (this article offers a nice recap) 3. Node.js is container-ready, which simplifies the move to cloud and microservices architectures (Richard Rodger, author of The Tao of Microservices, explains)
  • 12. Node.js and Performance In moving from monolithic Java server architecture to Node.js, Netflix improved performance and reduced infrastructure costs • Reduced start-up time from 40 mins to sub 1 minute • Reduced the number of EC2 instances on Node compared with the legacy Java stack by 75%, while serving the same number of subscribers at lower latencies
  • 13. Node.js and Performance Rolled out global site rebrand in 1 hour
  • 14. Node.js and Performance PayPal’s Node.js app doubled the number of requests per second and reduced response times by 35% versus previous Java version
  • 15. Node.js and Performance Groupon’s Node.js implementation reduced page load times by 50%
  • 16. Node.js and Performance Diagnostics Also see best Practices from Netflix’s @yunonx on maintaining high performance in large-scale production Node.js Applications Building Node.js Applications for visibility, live tracing and debugging is aided by advancements in Node.js Core and in the ecosystem around it (e.g. Restify, Bunyan, etc.) The Node.js Core Diagnostics Working Group is working to ensure Node.js provides a set of comprehensive, documented, extensible diagnostic protocols, formats, and APIs to enable tool vendors to provide reliable diagnostic tools for Node.js Work is divided into the following domains: • Tracing • Profiling • Heap and Memory Analysis • Step Debugging
  • 17. Node.js and Performance Debugging For problems you can’t diagnose expediently, or issues such as memory leaks, do post-mortems 1. Capture a core dump of running process at any time in production to capture all of the state of the process and then reboot it 2. There is now a broad set of tools that can be used: mdb_v8, llnode and IBM's IDDE 3. This methodology offers Node.js Engineers several advantages, including a. Allows services to stay up while developers investigate the problem (increased availability) b. Allows several developers to investigate the same problem not at the same time (easier collaboration) c. Allows developers to investigate issues at any time that is convenient for them (easier workflow) Also see the Node.js Core Post-Mortem Working Group and best Practices from Netflix’s @yunonx on maintaining high performance in large-scale production Node.js Applications
  • 19. Node.js and Customer Experience • Today’s digital consumers expect all available data to be leveraged in App instantly to make their experience effortless • This means an API-first strategy • No language is better than Node.js for taking advantage of the explosion of API data 19
  • 20. Drivers of the API Era Available Data CX Focus Device / End Point Explosion 20
  • 21. APIs on the Rise Source: Programmable Web Source: Apigee, The State of APIs 2016 21
  • 22. Node.js Excels for Data-intensive Apps • The richer an app’s API layer becomes, the better suited it is to Node.js • Node.js apps can handle thousands of concurrent connections • Open-source modules provide performant DB interaction out of box • SDKs available for consuming most third-party services and applications Many mlns of rides/day 75 mln members Streaming 100+ mln hrs/day 15 mln mobile profile views per day 22
  • 24. Node.js and Productivity Node.js for frontend and server side, and on devices where appropriate, can increase developer productivity and improve developer job satisfaction These improvements translate directly to the bottom line Sources: PayPal, Capital One, Skycatch, Fusion Marketing
  • 25. Node.js and Productivity Improved developer satisfaction means less turnover, a better employer brand and easier recruitment • Node.js Everywhere increases developers’ internal mobility, thus heading off one of the top reasons developers leave - namely lack of new challenges/monotonous work/feeling stuck • Node.js Everywhere also appeals to many developers’ desire to use more JavaScript, which is described as a fun and flexible language
  • 26. Node.js and Productivity Node.js Everywhere makes it easy for developers to implement features end-to-end, reducing context switches and handoffs between front-end and back-end developers Prior to replacing Java with Node.js on the server side, the Netflix UI team had to write many things twice and maintain separate toolchains
  • 27. Conclusion Node.js has helped transform the app dev landscape at leading organizations like Netflix, Capital One, Walmart, NASA, GoDaddy, PayPal - helping them keep pace with innovation in APIs, Web, mobile, devices and customer expectations With its strong ecosystem and massive repository of non-blocking modules, Node.js can help your organization too
