Is it possible and relevant to use meteorhacks:cluster with Galaxy?


New to Meteor, I discovered the microservices and clustering architecture recently through the meteorhacks:cluster package.

If I understand well, there is still several ways to benefit from clustering patterns while hosting on Galaxy :

  1. Put all your micro services on the same instance along with the load balancer. When you scale your app they are replicated and added to the swarm of micro-services
  2. Separate the load balancer and each and every service in its own app. When needed, granularly scale up the service that creates a bottleneck
  3. A mixed approach that involves isolating CPU intensive services in their own instance

In your opinion, is this pattern still relevant when hosting on Galaxy ? Do you know if it is possible to customize the port for several services on the same container with Galaxy ?
