Running without Edge Node Limitation (if any)

Running without Edge Node Limitation (if any)

New Contributor


We think about cluster with 3 Master and 3 Data. No Edge. 

Does anybody knows about any limitation in this configuration? 

I'm not asking about performance but more about specific applications or projects we can't run on this cluster.

Many thanks,




Re: Running without Edge Node Limitation (if any)




Is there any reason why you opt out edge node ? 


Edge node acts as a interface betweek the hadoop cluster and outside the network . 

if you want the give the access to the hadoop cluster at same time to restrict certain operations you would typical deploy a edge node or gateway role  like using  client tools. 


the limitation that i see is why give too much access to the cluster more than they require .
