I'm putting together a design for a 3 node cluster with the 6000 series nodes. The first block is 6235-G4, the second block, I'm a bit confused. I could get another identicle block with 1 node ( 6135-G4), but there is also the option of getting a 6135C, which is single socket, less RAM, smaller SSD and crappier CPU.
It's cheaper and will make the min 3 node cluster, but I'm wondering what kind of performance hit it will have for the overall solution. Am I better off getting a 6135-G4 and being done with it?

A 6135C is designed as a storage-only node for colder data - it's designed to run KVM exclusively and not be a member of your hypervisor cluster (no running of guest VM's). Unless you have the need for cold tiered data, you would be better served with the 6135-G4 as your third node.
