Response to: an important piece is missing.....
From what I understand, it's actually important that each node remain stable. The primary ways of dividing processing time on a supercomputer are nodes and hours. If you grab 10 nodes and are going to be doing computations for the next 10 hours, you'll have a significant issue with one node going down.
