    If I provision a brand new server using CentOS 6.4 x64 to be used as a node in an HDP Cluster. If I want to avoid to use the entire disk in a single partition, What would be the recommended partition layout? (type, size, mount point). Thanks in advance.

    Hi Tri,

    Would this be for a data node?
    It is entirely up to your own discretion. You can have a NFS mount for the data, or use physical disks. Obviously you would want to separate the data away from the OS used disks as you don’t want anything to contend with them.

    Let me know if this helps,
