Node.js Survey: AWS Cloud Continues to Be the Favorite Target for Deployment Node.js developers who deploy production code continue to love Amazon Web Services Inc.’s (AWS) cloud. This is according to a new survey. The Node.js Foundation’s third annual survey found that AWS was the preferred place to deploy code for production. It seems to be growing for development. It also revealed that most Node.js developers prefer on-premises infrastructure to actual development, as opposed to AWS, which was still in second place in the survey last year. The percentage of respondents who reported using AWS for development increased from 18 percent to 21 percent last year. Respondents also used AWS Lambda extensively, according to the survey report. These findings were presented in the 2018 Node.js Users Survey Report. This is the third consecutive year that the Node.js Foundation sought input from 1,626 respondents on JavaScript’s use. According to the report, “Amazon Web Services is followed closely by on-premise infrastructure.” However, a significant amount of users also deploy to Heroku and DigitalOcean, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. These deployment findings closely mirror those from last year. This year, 39% of respondents used the Ubuntu Linux distro for production, compared with 42% last year. Debian-based Linux distros ranked second in both years. This year, 41% of respondents used macOS for deployment, compared with 46% last year. This year, Windows jumped to second place in the development OS category (24%) and Ubuntu (21%) was third. Last year, Ubuntu was at 20 percent and Windows 18 percent.
