1. It’s Fast and Extremely Scaleable
2. Still works with MySQL
With pretty much of all the internets applications storing their database in the SQL format, porting existing applications or building new ones to a new system would be pretty traumatic – it would be impossible in fact. The good news it still works with SQL meaning all the usual database goodness, like synchronisation, tables etc. are still intact. This is great news as instead of having to learn, yet another database technology – it uses one you already know! Rather ironically we’ll all still be using PHPMyAdmin to access our databases – yea, someone should get to work building a Node database app – then we’ll all feel less blasphemous and traitor-y.
3. You already know how to use it
4. Turn your web app into a desktop application
