You will not have a problem growing beyond the original 24 nodes
as long as you have the right hardware.  Make sure you have the right
hardware that provides a full bisection bandwidth.  Going from 24
to 32 would be very hard (or impossible) not to unless you are wiring
some of the small enclosures together.
