Re: Which hardware to choose
Of course it all depends...
But something like this could work:

Leave 1-2 GB for the kernel, pagecache, tools, overhead etc.
Plan 3-4 GB for Datanode and Tasktracker each

Plan 2.5-3 GB per slot. Depending on the kinds of jobs, you may need more
or less memory per slot.
Have 2-3 times as many mappers as reducers (depending on the kinds of jobs
you run).

As Micheal pointed out the ratio of cores (hyperthreads) per disk matters.

With those initial rules of thumb you'd arrive somewhere between
10 mappers + 5 reducers
and
9 mappers + 4 reducers

Try, test, measure, adjust, rinse, repeat.

Cheers,

Joep
