Get started with OpenShift and Embedded Container Service standard resource mode requirements

Review the memory, storage, and hardware requirements for getting started with the Cloudera Data Warehouse (CDW) service in standard resource mode on Red Hat OpenShift 4.6 and Embedded Container Service.

To get started with the CDW service on standard resource mode, make sure you have fulfilled the following requirements:

Component Minimum for production workloads Recommended for production workloads
CPU 16 cores [can be achieved with 8 cores that have simultaneous multithreading (SMT) enabled] 32+ cores (can also be achieved by enabling SMT)
Memory 128 GB 384 GB
Storage (locally attached storage per Virtual Warehouse executor by using OpenShift Local Storage Operator) 600 GB per executor and Impala coordinator (SATA) 600 GB per executor and Impala coordinator (SSD/NVMe)
Storage (persistent volume storage on the file system mounts per Virtual Warehouse) Approx. 100 GB (5 x 20 GB) Approx. 100 GB (5 x 20 GB)
Network Bandwidth 1 GB/s guaranteed bandwidth to every CDP Private Cloud Base node 10 GB/s guaranteed bandwidth to every CDP Private Cloud Base node

Depending on the number of executors you want to run on each physical node, the per-node requirements change proportionally. For example, if you are running 3 executor pods per physical node, you require 384 GB of memory and approximately 1.8 TB of locally attached SSD/NVMe storage.
