  '''18. [#18 What kind of hardware scales best for Hadoop?]'''
+ 
  The short answer is dual processor/dual core machines with 4-8GB of RAM using ECC memory.
Machines should be moderately high-end commodity machines to be most cost-effective and typically
cost 1/2 - 2/3 the cost of normal production application servers but are not desktop-class
machines. This cost tends to be $2-5K. For a more detailed discussion, see MachineScaling
page.
