This is because the Cluster Compute instances that Amazon supports have been limited to a maximum of 60GB of RAM per node and so a terabyte of RAM will require 17 of them. From a Kognitio perspective, this is fine, our technology cares not about the number of nodes. From a financial perspective, your wallet may feel the pinch after a few hours of processing, especially if … Read moreRead More
