grows. Is this practice recommended?

I'm far from an expert and single node should be fine for development,
but for your production site, I'd suggest going with a minimal 'real'
cluster (2-3 nodes).   in my limited experience with hadoop, single
node is significantly different from multinode, and I wouldn't want to
start from a position where config  is certain to have to
fundamentally change as opposed to just grow.   But that's just my
first guess, you could try a dev move from a single node to a dual
node to find out how difficult it might be.
