Sizing & Scaling your Hadoop cluster
The Bigstep Metal Cloud unique architecture enables easy orchestration and management of complex clusters, through the API or the Control Center. Scaling is as easy as using a visual slider in the Control Center.
New compute instances can be added to the CDH cluster in moments. The CDH deployment scales with the size of the underlying Instance Array. Adding extra instances in the array registers in Cloudera Manager and services are automatically assigned to them.
The configuration of compute instances in an array can be redefined at any time, and the changes are applied after a simple restart. No additional delays are required for the data to be transferred out of each individual host. In two minutes you’re up and running, with more power than before.
