Hadoop Cluster Sizes

A few years ago, I presented Hadoop Operations: Starting Out Small / So Your Cluster Isn’t Yahoo-sized (yet) at a conference. It included a definition of Hadoop cluster sizes. I am posting those words here to ease future references to that definition.

Question: What is a tiny/small/medium/large [Hadoop] cluster?

Answer:

  • Tiny: 1-9 nodes
  • Small: 10-99 nodes
  • Medium: 100-999 nodes
  • Large: 1000+ nodes
  • Yahoo-sized: 4000 nodes
