Subject Hardware for Hadoop cluster
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2007 14:18:44 GMT
Hi,
I am trying to determine the best way to achieve the densest configuration
possible with Hadoop. So I have a couple of questions.

1. Is it worth it to use multi-core processors? How about the quad core
xeons?
2. Is the main bottleneck memory? If so should I load up on this?
3. I remember reading that Google's head node was not auto failover
(although this may have changed). Should I use redundant hardware for the
namename?
4. Are there any other recommendations that people have for hardware setups?

Steve
