Server side functionality is critical for IoT, wearables and other emerging devices. Node.js is made for the mobile functionality permeating every facet of business today. By using the Modulus platform, companies have a way to manage, monitor and scale the growth of these Node.js applications.
A case in point is Wal-Mart. On Thanksgiving weekend, Wal-Mart servers processed 1.5 billion requests a day. 70% of them were delivered through mobile, powered by Node.js.
Node.js offers the ability to handle enormous volumes of traffic because of how Node.js works, Walmart needed this advantage to meet mobile demand. Going forward we will see more mobile applications powered by Node.js.
Another key driver helping Node.js skyrocket is npm, the Node Package Management repository, npm is growing rapidly and recently reached a milestone of 100,000 modules - some contributed by corporations but most by individuals. A part of Node since the very early releases, the majority of the industry uses it. npm is currently the largest module repository used by developers in the world.
