NodeJS is an asynchronous, event-driven framework
It is scalable
It is ideal for I/O-bound applications
Node is ideal for data-intensive real-time applications. It has a lightweight memory footprint and allows a server to maintain multiple connections. It is fast and responsive. It supports many platforms. Depending on your needs, you may use Nodejs in a cross-platform application.
Node makes building server-side applications easy. Its event-driven design allows you to run different types of servers in a single file, rather than on a separate machine. Because of this, Node is compatible with different platforms and paired with a package for each one.
It is not efficient for relational database access
Nodejs was not designed for relational database access, which is the primary use case for this language. Relational databases store data in a fixed-size data structure, such as 8KB pages in PostgreSQL. Most relational databases use indexing to store data so that queries can find the row of a specific ID or sorted order quickly. As a result, Nodejs is not very efficient for relational database access.
Relational databases use structured query languages such as SQL. While this is a safe choice for complex queries, it has its limits. For example, every single table in relational databases must follow a certain data structure. Changing the structure can cause complicated problems or even destroy the system.
