Sizing Kubernetes for a single-node environment

This topic offers best practices for sizing Kubernetes for the default installation of Component Pack for HCL Connections in a single-node environment.

If your decision is to go with a single-node environment (so called all-in-one) and default installation of the Component Pack (installing all Component Pack offerings on a single machine running Kubernetes master and enabled to schedule non-system pods as well as a worker), your system should have the following specifications:

  • At least 16 CPUs
  • At least 64G of RAM
  • At least 50G of disk space used for persistent volumes for OpenSearch, Customizer, and MongoDB.

If you are using AWS, we advise using the m5a.4xlarge type of instance.
