Here’s my list of why I’m moving everything to Node.js that I run (i.e. maybe even THIS wordpress blog eventually).
- Node.js + Express.js or Bricks.js + Jade + Every DB Choice on Earth really is a convincing reason too.
- Node.js is fast enough, and easy enough to distribute and less resource intensive than almost anything on the market. All that and it requires almost nothing to configure and setup compared to Apache, IIS, and a bunch of those other solutions.
- The PaaS Solutions out there, thanks in large part to Nodejitsu, Nodester, and even the Windows Azure Node.js team have made deploying Node.js apps the easiest stack to deploy around – hands down – no contest.
