thank you peter.

80 connected nodes seems a low number if one seriously need to build
cloud applications.

i guess that one needs to develop his own mechanisms for
interconnecting nodes in a way more similar to a custom 'mesh
networking' [pardon the conceptually wrong extension of this term]?
would that be more appropriate, to your belief?
