Create template for Big Data server

Let us create template for Big Data Server. We will be using this template to provision servers to build Big Data Cluster.

  • First check quotas for CPUs, use 2 vCPUs with 8 GB. If you want you can use higher configuration if the quota is higher than 24 CPUs in any one region.
  • You also need to consider other services running under your account.
  • Click on Instance Templates
  • Name: bigdataserver
  • Machine Type: 2 vCPUs
  • Boot disk: Select Centos 7 and increase size to 32 GB
  • Rest: Leave defaults

We can use this template to provision as many nodes as we want for our Big Data Cluster.
