Thanks for using GraphLab Create. Predictive Services are restricted to EC2 instances of type m3.large or better. (We also support some of the older instance types such as m1.large+ and m2.large+.) At the moment, there is no way to launch them locally. Can you tell me a little bit more about your use case? Are you trying to launch on your own server or on your local workstation (for development reasons)? We are working to allow on-premise deployments, but we're not there yet.
In regards to your question about node.js, I'm not totally sure what you mean by "binding". We are fans of node.js, but we are not using it within Predictive Services. Why do you ask?
