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.
