Explains what the feature is or what its benefits are to the user or customer.
You can find information here on which configuration of memory, CPU, storage, and networking capacity you should be running for your instances. There are also details on how to configure your placement groups.
|Instance name||Data capacity||Root volume (SSD)||Data volume (SSD or HDD)|
|r4.16xlarge||Up to 250 GB||1 vol 200 GB||2 vols 400 GB each|
ThoughtSpot software license sizes
ThoughtSpot only sells software licenses in multiples of 250 GB of data. So you can start with 250 GB, and add increments of 250 GB each time your data capacity needs increase. You can also choose to start off with more than 250 GB of data, as long as you know the best fit configuration for your data volume.
A placement group is a logical grouping of instances within a single availability zone. Placement groups are recommended for applications that benefit from low network latency, high network throughput, or both.
ThoughtSpot relies on high connectivity between nodes of a cluster, which is why creating a placement group is recommended. Being in same placement group will give you the best shot at the highest bandwidth across AWS EC2 instances and the lowest latencies. This will make the node-node network reach the closest AWS promised specs. Our default recommendation for a multi-instance setup requires a placement group since it works best for our application performance. Also, AWS will provide jumbo frames (9000 MTU) support in such situations, and they don't charge extra for being in the same placement group. Having said that, ThoughtSpot will still work with EC2s in the cluster across placement groups in an availability zone.
