Subject Re: What is Size of a typical ACS production environment?
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2015 11:08:55 GMT
If I had to guess I would say 80/20 applies.

80% of cloudstack deployments < 100 nodes
20% > 100 nodes

There is a long tail..

there is actually research/stats on size of HPC clusters out there, and 80/20 roughly applies
on size of cluster.
