Fabric Engine Boosts Node.Js Performance 25-Fold

Fabric Engine server technology enables multi-threaded, compiled performance for Node.js in a way that any web developer can use

Fabric Engine, a software engineering company focused on bringing multi-threaded, compiled performance to web applications, has announced that its Fabric Engine server technology now supports Node.js, boosting its computational performance more than 25X. Fabric Engine has published the results of its performance benchmark online, and will be showcasing its support for Node.js at NodeJam this January.

Fabric Engine is designed to tap into the power of modern, multi-core processing to bring true, multi-threaded, compiled performance to web applications. As web applications grow, they start to run into performance and scalability problems that dynamic languages like JavaScript are not well-suited to solve. Consequently, these applications need to be re-architected using compiled languages like C++, introducing significant costs to the developer. Fabric Engine gives the same performance as C++, yet retains the ease of use and speed of iteration of dynamic languages.

"With Fabric Engine's server technology it's possible to take current backend infrastructure and redeploy it to scale and gain impressive performance increases," said Guido Vieira at Nexalogy, one of Fabric Engine's early customers. "Fabric Engine has other advantages too. In addition to using a language very similar to Javascript for the high-performance operators (vanilla JavaScript/node for everything else), which reduces the need to learn or bring in C++ coders, you can avoid the whole code-compile-run cycle with its sometimes long delays, and use a more immediate execute model."

Fabric Engine is ideal for compute-bound applications such as:

  • Semantic analysis
  • Real-time business intelligence
  • Recommendation engines
  • Large-scale simulations
  • Image/video processing and 3D applications

Fabric Engine is now available for download to all web developers as a public beta. For more information about Fabric Engine, visit www.fabric-engine.com or send an email to[email protected].

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
