Hi everyone,

As part of the Large Scale SIG[1] activities, I'd like to quickly poll 
our community on the following question:

How many compute nodes do you feel comfortable fitting in a 
single-cluster deployment of OpenStack, before you need to scale it out 
to multiple regions/cells/.. ?

Obviously this depends on a lot of deployment-dependent factors (type of 
activity, choice of networking...) so don't overthink it: a rough number 
is fine :)

Thanks in advance,
