DataNodes drives larger than 8TB

DataNodes drives larger than 8TB


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.
