Subject Re: one big cluster vs multiple smaller clusters
Date Mon, 14 Oct 2013 11:14:38 GMT
By clusters do you mean data centers? If so, I think it depends on your use
case and application requirements.

For instance, if you have a web application and and analytics application
(hadoop), you would want to separate your cluster in 2 different data
centers (even if they're located in the same physical zone). If it's just
one application then you can start with one data center and add more data
centers later if needed.
