Outlines how to run a single node configuration of QF2 in AWS
- Configuration overview
- Recommendations and Data Protection
- AWS account
- Permission to launch EC2 instances
- Account limits large enough for 5TB of EBS ST1 and 500GB of EBS GP2
- AMI of QF2 for AWS (2.6.11 or greater)
- Free Trial available here or image provided directly after purchase
Running QF2 in AWS as a single node cluster provides you with 5TB of raw storage so that you can leverage the full power of the Qumulo filesystem. As you begin using QF2 in AWS, please consider the following:
- A stand alone single-node system cannot be expanded. Adding nodes is disabled in the UI and API.
- In stand alone mode, Qumulo does not include any data protection beyond what is provided by the underlying EBS storage.
- Customers should configure as a 4+ node cluster to enable scaling and data protection. This functionality is not available in the free trial.
Qumulo requires the following configuration for the single node EC2 instance:
- One of the following EC2 instance types:
NOTE: No other instance types are supported at this time
- The following EBS volume configuration:
- five 100GB GP2 volumes
- ten 500GB ST1 volumes
NOTE: Modifying the type or size of the EBS volumes in the QF2 AMI will render the software not functional. Please use the AMI volume layout provided in the original image.
Running QF2 in standalone configuration is recommended for evaluation and for workflows where high availability, data durability and performance scalability is not required. It is not recommended to use standalone mode for production data without a replication or backup strategy.
You should now be able to successfully configure a single-node instance of QF2 in AWS.
