Table 1.1. Recommended Deployment Hardware

HardwareRequirements

Network State Database, API, and Agent Nodes

CPU: 64-bit x86, quad core or above

Memory: ≥ 32GB RAM

HDD: ≥ 30GB (available free disk space)

NIC: 2 x ≥ 1Gbit

2 x GW Nodes

CPU: 64-bit x86, quad core or above

Memory: ≥ 32GB RAM

HDD: ≥ 30GB

Network: 3 x ≥ 1Gbit

NIC Cards

For a high-performance data network: use NICs that support multiple queues and MSI-X

Top of Rack Switch

Non-blocking multilayer switch (L2/L3) with jumbo frame support

Hard Disks

Ideally, both the ZooKeeper transaction log and Cassandra data files need their own dedicated disks, with additional disks for other services on the host. However, for small POCs and small deployments, it is ok to share the Cassandra disk with other services and just leave the Zookeeper transaction log on its own.
