help in choosing hardware specifications for HDP+HDF, all in one server for Development purpose

Dear all,

we are an education institute, we want to have a server for student projects in hadoop. we will be using all the hdp+HDF technologies. before we were planning to have two servers, one for HDP and one for HDF, but recently we found a document telling that we can install both in one server as well.

https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDF3/HDF-3.0.2/bk_installing-hdf-and-hdp/bk_installing-hdf...

so we plan to have one server to reduce the budget.

we are planning to have the following, please correct us if something is not appropriate;

CPU=16 core e5 xeon processor

RAM=96GB

HD=2 TB

Network=10Gb bindwith.

we will be installing the latest releases of hdp and hdf with centos operating system.

please guide us with this.

thank you.

more RAM is usually good. I think you will need a lot more disk for logs, data, install, OS.

Also you have to partition the drives.

Centos is a good choice.
