Disk partitioning

Each Fabric Services System node can be configured as a storage node or as a non-storage node. In each environment, to ensure redundancy, at least two of the nodes must be configured as storage nodes.

Depending on the storage role of a node (non-storage node or storage node), the following requirements are in place for the disk partitions:

  • Storage and non-storage nodes: Single root (/) partition of 200GB SSD storage. Do not create separate /opt, /var, or /usr partitions. A separate /boot partition is strongly suggested.
  • Storage nodes only: Separate Linux type partition of 300GB SSD storage without a file system.
Tip: As best practice, do not include a swap partition as the nodes are running Kubernetes.
