We (NeCTAR) have 3 tiers, our current setup has one parent, 6 children then 3 
of the children have 2 grandchildren each. All compute nodes are at the lowest 

Everything works fine and we haven’t needed to do any modifications. 

We run in a 3 tier system because it matches how our infrastructure is 
logically laid out, but I don’t see a problem in just having a 2 tier system 
and getting rid of the middle man.
