I'm not sure about the nodes, but each of the 10 pod has up to 200mCPU. I started out with 2 pods, each with up to 500mCPU, but got horrendous response times (multiple minutes). My local testing was showing me that SpiceDB's response time are climbing up very fast as request concurrency increases (even with as little as 10 concurrent requests), so I tried scaling out. I'm happy to try fewer pods again, though!
