Well, yes, ... that's sort of why I'm asking the question :-)

Personally, I would create a storage cluster and a VM cluster, allowing for epxansion of the virtual nodes later if time/budget permits.

That's what I've done. Overall throughput is quite good, but seems to
suffer a bit on small writes.

Which leads to two follow-up questions:

1. Can I assume that you're both suggesting a 4-node storage cluster, and a 4-node VM cluster - running on the same 4 computers? If so, that's sort of what I'm aiming for.

2. What software are you running for your storage cluster?

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In<fnord>  practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
