Is your License include HA and Enterprise Grid options?
Are you planning for implementation of HA and GRID or HA alone?
Is the product is PowerCenter alone or it's PowerCenter and Data Quality? If both, then no of application services define the CPU/cores requisites.
Answers to the above questions would define the required Informatica environment setup that conforms to the license limits.
I think these questions are good but not necessarily to be given a thought for my question:
As I mentioned, the non-production environment license is UNLIMITED CPU Core based.
Keeping this in mind, "in general", what are the pros & cons of maintaining the SDLC phases in individual domains on separate nodes when compared to that of maintaining the same in individual domains but on a single node?

a) We have PC AE & DQ SE.
b) We want to separate them. I initiated a separate conversation at:
c) The PC AE has HA, Grid options. But we setup fail-over mechanism only in PROD env. And, that too we do it some other means - i.e. we do not make use of HA option of PC.
