I am not a deployment and production maintenance kind of guy, but here are what we faced when we used clustered deployment.
Licensing : You have to be aware of the licensing per node issues -- it might cost you more.
Distribution Costs -- By distributing it across multiple nodes, a RPC call can call a lot more than across a CPU on the same system.
Deployment Issues -- Logging gets a little more difficult to manage, especially if you have multiple Logging files and you want to get some information from the log files on a regular basis.
Engineering -- you will have to engineer your software a lil more ruggedly since the chances of failure is now more distributed.
BTW, what is RV ?
There might be more but these are the issues we faced.
