Deploying Node.js App

Below is a table comparing how to deploy a Node.js app on AWS, GCP, and Azure, along with some of the best services to use for each platform:

Service AWS GCP Azure Steps on Setting Up
Compute Service Amazon EC2 Google Compute Engine (GCE) Azure Virtual Machines (VMs) 1. Create a virtual machine instance (EC2)
2. Set up Node.js on the instance
Serverless AWS Lambda Google Cloud Functions Azure Functions 1. Create a serverless function
2. Package and deploy your Node.js app
Container Orchestration Amazon ECS or EKS Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) 1. Create a container cluster
2. Deploy your Node.js app using Kubernetes manifests
App Platform AWS Elastic Beanstalk Google App Engine Azure App Service 1. Create an app environment
2. Deploy your Node.js app to the platform
Database Amazon RDS or DynamoDB Google Cloud SQL or Firestore Azure SQL Database or Cosmos DB 1. Create a database instance
2. Connect and deploy your Node.js app
File Storage Amazon S3 or EFS Google Cloud Storage Azure Blob Storage 1. Create a storage bucket/container
2. Upload your app's files
Networking Amazon VPC Google Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Azure Virtual Network 1. Set up a virtual network
2. Configure network rules for your app
Load Balancing Amazon ELB or ALB Google Cloud Load Balancing Azure Load Balancer or Application Gateway 1. Create a load balancer
2. Add your app instances to the balancer
Monitoring Amazon CloudWatch Google Cloud Monitoring Azure Monitor 1. Set up monitoring for your app
2. Configure alerting and logs

These steps are simplified overviews of the process and may involve more specific configurations depending on your application's needs and the cloud provider's UI/CLI/API. Always refer to the official documentation of the respective cloud provider for detailed and up-to-date instructions.
