Not that I know of, do you have an existing test system you can use as a baseline ?For memory have a read of the JVM Heap Size section here http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/MemtableThresholdsYou will also want to have some memory for disk caching and the os. 8 or 12gb feels like a good start.For disk capacity I just did some regular old guess work, and multipled my number by 1.25 tocover the on disk overhead. You also want to avoid using more than 50% of the local disk space, due tocompaction and the way the disk performance falls away. There is more info available hereHow much throughout do you need? How much redundancy do you need? How much data do youplan to store?Hope that helpsAaron
