DataNodes drives larger than 8TB

[ Edited ]

Hi folks, the Cloudera Enterprise Reference Architecture for Bare Metal Deployments says "Cloudera does not support exceeding 100 TB per data node. You could use 12 x 8 TB spindles or 24 x 4 TB spindles. Cloudera does not support drives larger than 8 TB."

Is this so strict? I ask because we are about to buy a high density solution that comes with 12TB discs and obviously I do not have 12TB discs to try.

Thanks in advance.
