I think it should work okay - it really depends on the use (access
patterns, load, ...)
There'll be a good deal of wasted space and resources (block sizes,
space used in the databases etc).
One idea would be to split the cluster in 2 or 3 chunks to more easily
get the tracker and database load scaled horizontally.
Another is to make the storage nodes "smarter" about how they store
their files (use something else than the file system).
