Node JS Cluster Performance in AWS

Original Article by :@ScottWRobinson

http://stackabuse.com/setting-up-a-node-js-cluster/ popped up on my Twitter feed posted by @DanWahlin.

And now I knew how I was going to spend my Friday night. As I and most of us work within one of the cloud computing realms, I was curious how the original article applies to various instance types as virtual cores != processors.

The question: What is the throughput of various EC2 instance types & sizes for both single threaded & clustered NodeJS configurations?

For my purposes I’ll be running performance testing within AWS EC2.
