ReliaCloud Edge Nodes

ReliaCloud Hosted Private Cloud

High Density Compute

ReliaCloud Edge High Density Compute (HDC) is configured to support clusters with a higher density of VMs per node.

HDC clusters are appropriate for environments with hundreds to thousands of VMs. When building HDC environments consider N+2 architectures.

Sizing Guidance

Model HDC.4830H 
OneNeck Benchmark Score*  149
VMs per Node  50 
Largest Size VM – vCPU  18

*OneNeck Benchmark Score – A VM average size is used as the baseline for setting a standard configuration to track price points across cloud solutions. This includes 2vCPU, 8 GB of RAM and 300 GB of storage.

The VM sizing was calculated across OneNeck’s study of our ReliaCloud customer base, and we’ve taken this VM sizing to give an approximate indicator of how many benchmark VMs we could safely fit into a 3-node cluster comprised of a specific node type.  Settings assume the follow parameters:

  • Per VM: 210 GiB cold and 90 Gib hot data
  • Cluster:  AHV, 4 to 1 vCPU : Physical core ratio, RF2 data resiliency, N+1 fault tolerance to 85% resource thresholds, in cluster scale out Prism Central and local data protection with snapshot schedule 4xhourly,7xdaily, 4xweekly, 1xmonthly.
