Controller Node Memory

asked 2011-11-09 04:35:29 -0600

I'm trying to determine the hardware needed for a compute node and a controller node. I've gone through the documentation and am wondering why the controller node is recommended to have 12 GB of RAM? Does the controller node and its associated nove-services really need 12 GB? Also, is each nova-service associated with the controller node hosted on its own virtual machine?

It really depends on how much scale you have in mind. With more memory, the performance of MySQL and RabbitMQ will probably be more beneficial.
