Horizontal Scalable Real Time Web Applications

Submitted Aug 22, 2016

We would be discussing how node.js has grown as an ecosystem for building real time web apps and how new open source technologies in collaboration with node.js can be used to build high performance applications. We will discuss using elastic search as the data store in node applications for storing large amount of data and using kibana from the ELK stack to visually analyse our data from the web app.


  1. Why node.js for real time applications
  2. Choice of data store - primary and secondary data store
  3. ELK stack
  4. Integrating elastic search with node.js
  5. Leveraging the ELK stack - Graphical analysis using kibana
