    Hi Joan,

    There are generic recommendations and guidelines for configuring hosts in a cluster, but no single solution that is guaranteed to meet all use cases. It depends on the data you are working with, as well as the types of analysis use cases you are looking to enable.

    Feel free to contact Hortonworks at so we can understand your intended use cases, goals and requirements and help configure a 10 node cluster.
