Re: too big, or too small

You can mix and match the storage nodes and compute nodes, so you could have a big compute node combined with one or more small storage nodes. That's part of the rationale behind the architecture because is makes it easier to get the scaling ratios right.

Seperate scaling of CPU and Memory in a pooled configuration (similar to storage) would be interesting though, wouldn't it :-)
