This document shows how to install Select Deploy on an Intel NUC to create a small form-factor Select Deploy appliance.
ONTAP Select Deploy is an essential tool used to create and monitor ONTAP Select clusters. Additionally, it provides a mediator service that enables high availability for two-node Select clusters. Deploy is provided as a virtual machine (VM) that runs on either the VMware ESXi or KVM hypervisors. In certain small-form-factor deployments, the hosts used forSelect do not have enough resources to run both a Select node and a Deploy VM.In those instances, an Intel NUC can be used to run Deploy as a low-cost, small-form-factor standalone appliance.
Hi...As per a wordpress publishing, the VM requires 4 vCPUs, 16gb of RAM, and 300gb+ of disk space, which is just within reach of a small platform like the intel NUC.
The datastore really should be a local SSD or NVME based datastore for performance reasons, so I will be deploying it to the internal NVME drive on my NUC. The VM will need about 302GB for a thick provisioned deployment.
Could you share a link to the wordpress article? I'm curious why it says "300gb+" disk space - that's not a requirement for either Deploy or Select.
FYI - This post (TR) is about running Deploy on a NUC - not an actual ONTAP Select cluster. Requirements for Deploy are much lower (2 CPUs, 4GB Memory, 40Gb storage) - I run mine on a CentOS / KVM NUC setup (no OpenVswitch).
