Node.JS - Builds Scalable Network Programs

  •        0

Node.js is a server-side JavaScript environment that uses an asynchronous event-driven model. It could handle thousands of concurrent connections. This allows Node.js to get excellent performance based on the architectures of many Internet applications. It is an evented I/O for V8, which is Google's open source JavaScript engine.

Using Javascript in the server and in the browser helps to work in a single programming environment. They could communicate using JSON.

libevent - an event notification library

The libevent API provides a mechanism to execute a callback function when a specific event occurs on a file descriptor or after a timeout has been reached. It is meant to replace the asynchronous event loop found in event-driven network servers.

Tornado - Non-blocking Web Server powers FriendFeed

Tornado is an open source version of the scalable, non-blocking web server and tools that power FriendFeed. The framework is distinct from most mainstream web server frameworks (and certainly most Python frameworks) because it is non-blocking and reasonably fast. Because it is non-blocking and uses epoll, it can handle thousands of simultaneous standing connections, which means it is ideal for real-time web services. Tornado is one of Facebook's open source technologies.
