All our clusters have masters (controllers) that run in VMs (OpenNebula
with Ceph backed storage). We never had any issues, but our clusters are
relatively small (between 16 and 200 nodes). The slurmdbd also runs on a
VM, with a bit more storage underneath.

Each VM has 4 cores, 8GiB RAM.

Kind regards,
