Just be aware that if "big" servers imply *lots* of data (especially
in relation to memory size), it's not necessarily the best trade-off.
Consider the time it takes to do repairs, streaming, node start-up,

If it's only about CPU resources then bigger nodes probably make more
sense if the h/w is cost effective.
