That is very cool - a complete app defined using off-the-shelf
components and references to existing code, deployed to a cloud (or
Docker-Clocker) just using YAML and no additional coding. Just what
Brooklyn should be about :-)

I'm not hugely familiar with Node.js. I'm assuming it's using its own
embedded web server - are there any interesting sensors we can get out
of that to drive an auto-scaler policy? But then Node's reputation is
that it can already reach a very high throughput compared to its
competition so maybe scale is not an issue :-)
