JavaScript Ember.js Ember Data The REST Adapter

Would Node.js work as a replacement for Rails on the backend to serve up the data for a blog in Ember.js?

I'm not really certain what the similarities and differences between Rails and Node are, but in the context of the 'The REST Adapter' video Michael uses Rails to manage his server-side code. Could Node handle this function alternatively?

I would also like more information on this subject. I don't know much about Node or Rails, but the short answer is yes.

If someone has any information on the pros and cons of Node or Rails, I'd love to hear it.
