LineRate (now part of F5 Networks) provides a high-performance Layer 7 software network appliance that is fully programmable via Node.js embedded into its datapath. This talk will show how embedding Node.js in this way makes it easy to build complex network services, such as A/B testing, replication of production traffic to staging, XML gateways and API gateways. The talk will also discuss the challenges faced and solutions developed to embed Node.js into a pre-existing sizable C++ datapath.
