What is Node.js?
Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
What is Tornado?
By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.
What is Cocoa Touch (iOS)?
The Cocoa Touch layer contains key frameworks for building iOS apps. These frameworks define the appearance of your app. They also provide the basic app infrastructure and support for key technologies such as multitasking, touch-based input, push notifications, and many high-level system services.

I have benchmarked Node.js and other popular frameworks using a real life application example. You can find the results here: https://email@example.com/web-rest-api-benchmark-on-a-real-life-application-ebb743a5d7a3
leemunroe uses Node.js
This was my first Node.js app. You could call it experimental. I also used Express.
Klout uses Node.js
The social ranking platform, Klout, used to use a PHP & LAMP stack but found it difficult to continue to scale, so when they had the chance they moved to a Node.js backend. They even wrote about switching to Node.js and how they use it. [additional source: http://blog.klout.com/2011/10/the-tech-behind-klout-com/]
Trello uses Node.js
The server side of Trello is built in Node.js. We knew we wanted instant propagation of updates, which meant that we needed to be able to hold a lot of open connections, so an event-driven, non-blocking server seemed like a good choice. Node also turned out to be an amazing prototyping tool for a single-page app. The prototype version of the Trello server was really just a library of functions that operated on arrays of Models in the memory of a single Node.js process, and the client simply invoked those functions through a very thin wrapper over a WebSocket. This was a very fast way for us to get started trying things out with Trello and making sure that the design was headed in the right direction. We used the prototype version to manage the development of Trello and other internal projects at Fog Creek.
Wikipedia uses Node.js
Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects use Node.js for VisualEditor's backend, Parsoid.
MaxCDN uses Node.js
We decided to move the provisioning process to an API-driven process, and had to decide among a few implementation languages:
We built prototypes in both languages, and decided on NodeJS:
Getting into the headspace and internalizing the assumptions of a tool helps pick the right one. NodeJS assumes services will be non-blocking/event-driven and HTTP-accessible, which snapped into our scenario perfectly. The new NodeJS architecture resulted in a staggering 95% reduction in processing time: requests went from 7.5 seconds to under a second.

Used node.js server as backend. Interacts with MongoDB using MongoSkin package which is a wrapper for the MongoDB node.js driver.

I don't know how well this will scale if/when I have hundreds of people connected simultaneously, but I suspect that when that time comes, it may be just a matter of increasing the hardware.
mickdekkers uses Node.js
Node.js simplifies development by letting you use a single language on the client and server. This has the added benefit of keeping your apps DRY because you can share code between them.
Its package registry, npm, is the largest of any language. With over 500,000 packages and 500+ new packages being registered every day, you can almost always find what you're looking for. And if you can't, why not make your own and share it with the world?
