What are cons for placing both stage and production versions of the same db
on our only "real" cluster?  4 cpu / 4 gig ram dell server.

We have heavy batch work where we prepare data for submission to another
process, so there is a ton of munge work in the batches for 2+ hr durations
and then no real activity  rest of day.

Would you put both STAGE and PROD in this configuration, knowing that you
could take Stage out via the cluster management?  Or would you just put
Stage on a beefed up workstation, or "We dun't need no stink'n STAGE" ;->
