Muscula Architecture: Node.js, MongoDB, and CDN

Allan Ebdrup:

The frontend interfaces with the backend entirely through JSONP calls and the only thing passed through those JSONP calls is pure data as JSON strings. There is no html-markup whatsoever on the backend. The separation between frontend and backend is logical as well as physical. The frontend is hosted on entirely different servers than the backend and on a different domain. […] The backend is build with Node.JS and MongoDB. The backend is also layered in tiers. There is a layer for security, a layer for returning uniform error messages and status codes and other layers.

Among the listed advantages of such an architecture:

  • one programming language in the entire technology stack: JavaScript.
  • scalable
  • very fast load time for the users of the application
  • schemaless database
  • no ORM

And obviously this is a much better solution than having the front-end directly access the data store.
