The reason for doing things this way is to make continuous deployment easier, but also to never have to reboot or change e servers much. The node.js services will be well tested and unchanging.
This should reduce maintenance to the bare minimum,and I can push out a new set of appliances over time and slowly migrate trafic to them once or twice a year when I need to update core funcationality.
Sounds like a cool combination, but I doubt that maintaining 4 different pieces will end up being as easy as he thinks it will.
