Pro and Cons using VMs for CDP

New Contributor

Hi all, we are planing to use Vmware VMs for our production cluster for CDP 7.1.7. Is there any recommendation on the configurations, capacity and architecture from Cloudera on this?

 

Any link,whitepaper or documentation will be helpful.

What is the difference in performance in using VMs than using physical servers? Which one is preferred and why?

Hello @HiThere 

 

Thanks for using Cloudera Community. To your Query, Kindly refer [1] & [2] for Resource Requirement for CDP v7.1.7. Note that Documentation refers to Hardware requirement in terms of Resources (CPU, Memory, Network, Disk) as opposed to Physical Machines or Virtual Machines. As long as your Team meet the Hardware requirement for Storage & Compute, the Virtualized & Bare-Metal choices shouldn't matter.
