We have 12GB per node, 3x1g ethernet for 3 independent VLANs: public for 
VMs, VM<->public ceph, private ceph.

I think it all depends on the concurrent IO you have on your VMs, in 
this case nodes have plenty of CPU/RAM for the 4 VMs .

We have this kind of setup on different clients and we're very happy. In 
our office the cluster has 9 OSD and about 20 VMs running . This is 
mainly development so there are spikes in VMs use.
