Description

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 Finatra?

At Twitter, Finagle provides the building blocks for most of the code written on the JVM. It has long-served as Twitter's extensible, protocol-agnostic, highly-scalable RPC framework.
