If you have a traditional Active/Active ClusterXL cluster and one member fails, then the other cluster member will have to shoulder the load of both members.
If both members are above 50% capacity and one fails, now your remaining member will be overloaded and that may cause additional issues.
As long as you understand/accept that tradeoff, it's fine.

If you need more capacity and don't want to sacrifice resiliency, your choices are to buy larger appliances or use Maestro.
