Project Name: analytics
Type of quota increase requested: <cpu/ram>
Hi! The analytics team runs in its Analytics project several clusters like Kafka, Hadoop, Druid, etc.. to test changes and settings before hitting production. The Hadoop cluster is the most important, and needs big(ish) instances to be able to test properly things like HDFS, multi-node upgrades, etc.. We are about to test new important Hadoop features (improved security, replacement of master nodes, etc..) and we'd need to spin up new hosts (likely 4/5) all possibly m1.large. We are going to clean up the instances that we don't use soon, but from a quick count we wouldn't get all the resources needed.
The project is currently not completely full, but I will not be able to create the next round of m1.larges for my next project (test the replacement of the Hadoop master nodes).
Thanks in advance! Let me know if you have further questions :)
