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 PHPixie?

PHPixie is easy to learn and does not rely on automagic. PHPixie will fit both newcomers and experienced architects providing ease of use, solid foundation and total flexibility.
