Hey Stephen,

Two get a "supported" installation, you'd need 2 PCs minimum.
PC-1 To act as cloud controller, cluster controller and storage (walrus, SC)
PC-2 To act as "node". You can later on add as many nodes as you want

I would be quite hesitant to install any of those as "VMs". There are 
hacks to install everything on one node, but they're just hacks
