Top posting my own reply here Allen,

I will allocate more nodes to the specific ‘Hadoop’ label/pool soon so please keep an
ear out for that, if 
you didn’t want to add ‘ubuntu’ to any of your jobs you can wait for these.

we're at something like 60% capacity: H2,H3,H7,H8,H9 are all offline).

that. We started sending notifications of disconnected boxes to mailing lists, but got complaints,
so that has stopped.

from a hardware increase.

> 1. The Hadoop Nodes H0-H9 - Hadoop and related projects have priority 
> 2. H* Nodes that are generic and available to all (Not specifically Hadoop and related)

> 3. The generic ‘ubuntu’ nodes - everybody is welcome
> 4. Miscellaneous nodes - Everybody is welcome!
> That is a minimum of 27 nodes at your disposal and this number is set to increase even
further soon.

use other nodes, you can,

> In other words, feel free to change your job labels from ‘Hadoop’ to ‘Hadoop &&
ubuntu’ etc...
