We run our storage nodes on our web heads.  This makes sense for us  
because we're mostly storing small files in mogile and we  
aggressively cache them upstream (memcached, 'course).  So we're not  
too worried about keeping memory free for the buffer cache.  Same for  
CPU, mogstored uses a tiny fraction compared to our PHP processes.
