OnTAP Select Deploy Placement for a 2 node Cluster



We will likely deploy our first OnTAP Select 2-node cluster soon at one of our small branch offices. The office in question will have a 2 node VMware cluster to run it on. I'm confused regarding where I should place the OnTAP Deploy VM. I know it is used as a witness. We could host it at our main headquarters, however there are occasional brief losses of connectivity between the offices that would cause an issue if there had to be an unplanned failover at the same time. If I understand correctly, I can't deploy it on one of the two existing hosts because it creates a SPOF. We aren't going to buy a server and stand up a new host just for this one VM. Any thoughts or suggestions? I'm especially interested in what others have done.
