Cloud installation requirements¶
The requirements for installing Anaconda Enterprise are the same whether you choose to install the platform on premises or on a cloud server, with the exception of the following:
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Due to etcd’s sensitivity to disk latency, only use EC2 instances with a minimum of 3000 IOPS. We recommend an instance type no smaller than
m4.4xlarge for both master and worker nodes.
- If performing a CLI-based install on AWS, use the
--cloud-provideroption when installing the master, and when joining the worker nodes to the cluster.
- When running the
sudo ./gravity installcommand, the installer automatically detects EC2 and uses the VPC-based flannel backend instead of VXLAN. To force the use of VXLAN, use the
--cloud-provider genericoption in the installation command.
To meet CPU and disk I/O requirements, the minimum size for the selected VM should be Standard D16s v3 (16 VCPUs, 64 GB memory).
For RHEL/CentOS, run the following commands to ensure
dnsmasq is stopped and disabled:
- To stop
sudo systemctl stop dnsmasq
- To disable
sudo systemctl disable dnsmasq
- To verify
sudo systemctl status dnsmasq
Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
No requirements for installing Anaconda Enterprise are unique to Google Cloud Platform.
