I take the liberty to add Fabian to this thread.
Here is the link to the most current node release:

Be aware, this is not a stable release ATM but provides HE features. 
This works quite cleverly by fetching an OVF offline engine install.

Here I go along with Sven's notes for most of the part. The node project 
is quite ambitious. You might have some troubles with special hardware. 
Esp. SELinux is a real challenge, also EL7 with systemd. But if you want 
(many) lightweight hosts witch standard hardware and an easy deployment 
cycle, node is for you. Give it a try and see if it suits your needs and 
share your experience...

[1] Fabian's announcement

to be able to give Node a go on the oVirt 3.5 TestDay, we provide a 
fresh build of Node including the 3.5rc2 package here:


We did not see any SELinux denials, but if you experience any problems, 
please try to install Node in permissive mode by appending
during the installation.
