Re: Hadoop cluster hardware configuration
if you are doing computations using hadoop on a miniscale yes this hardware
is good enough.

Normally hadoop clusters are pre-occupied with the heavy loads so they are
not shared for multiple usage unless your utilization of hadoop is on lower
side and then you want to reuse the hardware.
