Subject Re: Metastore sizing

The metastore is relatively small. We have hundreds of tables and
thousands partitions and we are at 10GB. I hear it will be smaller
once I update to hive 0.9.0.

I would go with a number like 80GB so I can have many local backups
and headroom etc.

Is there any ball park figure for the size of the RDS instance required? I guess this depends
on number of tables, partitions, etc., but I couldn't find any information about how that
translates to metastore size.
