Application Scaling

Abstract

Node.js applications can be a challenge. JavaScript’s single threaded nature prevents Node from taking advantage of modern multi-core hardware. In order to scale effectively, Node applications must find a way to take advantage of all of the resources at their disposal. The cluster core module serves this purpose, allowing a single application to launch a collection of Node processes that share resources while distributing the load.
