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,







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 .
