Cloud performance requirements#
The installation requirements for Anaconda Enterprise are the same whether you choose to install the platform on premises, hosted VSphere, or on a cloud server. The only cloud-specific requirement for running Anaconda Enterprise relates to performance, so ensure your chosen cloud platform meets these minimum specifications before you begin:
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Due to etcd’s sensitivity to disk latency, only use EC2 instances with a minimum of 3000 IOPS. Anaconda recommends an instance type no smaller than
m4.4xlarge for both master and worker nodes.
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).
Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
No requirements for installing Anaconda Enterprise are unique to Google Cloud Platform.
After you’ve verified that your system meets these performance requirements—as well as all system requirements—you are ready to installing the cluster.
