I am currently using Amazon EC2 and running a Node.js application, however the HTTPS handshake etc. is now becomming a bottleneck, so I was wondering if this is possible:
- 2 EC2 instances running Node.js (Rest JSON Api) on HTTP port 80
- Elastic Load Balancer routes all traffic (https) from port 443, and encrypted etc. to http port 80
This would greatly increase my performance of my EC2 node.js server, and everything will still be secure since only the load balancer is accessable from the internet and the EC2 instances will be running privately.
Thanks for help
