Node.js can be run on the IBM i power system, a platform that provides enterprise-grade scalability and reliability for business applications.
Extensions have been created to allow Node.js applications to access IBM DB2® for i objects and IBM i system resources and objects.
You can find out more about running Node.js applications on IBM i from the Node.js product Web page
Many developers are basing the architecture of their real-time applications on the Node.js framework because of its inherent event-driven architecture and non-blocking I/O API. But the power of that architecture can’t be realized unless the hosting environment provides enterprise-grade scalability and reliability, and that is where the IBM® i platform enters into the picture.
