It's technically possible for a POC (just compose a role [1]
accordingly) but it's not a recommended configuration because the
controllers use pacemaker with power fencing which you don't want
running on your OSD hosts. E.g. pacemaker could take out 1/3rd of your
OSDs and make the cluster backfill. If you're short on nodes then one
option is to use four. One as a basic KVM hypervisor to host VMs
including a virtual undercloud and three virtual controllers. Then use
three physical HCI nodes which host the VMs and OSDs.
