How to Build a Nodejitsu style PaaS

Problem

I'm relatively new to Node.js and the PaaS scene and I'm interested in building a somewhat similar service. Can someone enlighten me on how Nodejitsu's (or similar providers') components (ie http-proxy, spawning node processes, load balancing, hardware infrastructures) fit together?

Thank you!

Solution

Well fortunately there is a company that ran a Node.js PaaS that open sourced all of their code. They were purchased by AppFog.

  1. Nodester.com
  2. Nodester source

I'd imagine that reviewing this code would answer your question.
