Node.js Performance
Unlock Powerful Application Delivery

Are you looking to optimise your application performance? Are bottlenecks crippling your delivery? We can help

We’ve been solving major performance problems for large enterprises for years, from Conde Nast and News UK to Protocol Labs and Moody’s using Node.js as a key implementation technology. We work with developers, architects and organisations like yours to uncover your bottlenecks and provide recommendations on how to solve them with the right tech stack to power your needs.

Take Net-a-Porter for example: by pinpointing bottlenecks in their applications and giving them the knowledge and tools they needed to do it themselves, they achieved a 50% increase in throughput while reducing server costs by 60%!

From the early days of Node.js contributions through to our leadership in Fastify, HTTP2, Pino, Clinic.js and React ESX, we have built upon our expertise and our sheer focus to radically improve performance across the entire enterprise system architecture from top to bottom. We help organisations achieve superior performance in not just applications and servers but in their processes, people and workflows too.

Tailored Advice!

Rather than just giving you ‘5 Ways to Address Performance with Node.js‘ why not let us tailor the advice to your needs.

Maintaining high security without sacrificing performance in deployments of up to 40,000 users was the key requirement for the new system. Together with NearForm, we came through with a powerful system, we met our deadlines and delivered a superior end product.
