Ill just chime in and say that this is not practical for a few reasons. The largest known riak cluster has like 50 or 60 nodes. Afaik, inter node communication of erlang clusters top out at a few hundred nodes. I'm also under the impression that each physical node has to have enough file descriptors to accommodate every virtual node in the cluster. 

I'd love to hear more from basho.
