Planning for Deployments Larger than 12 Nodes in the HyperScale Cluster

A maximum of 12 nodes can be included in the initial setup of the HyperScale X Reference Architecture cluster.

If you have more than 12 nodes that needs to be included in the initial deployment, deploy the nodes as follows:

  • Power on and include 12 nodes during the initial deployment.

  • Add the additional nodes as described in Expanding the Storage Pool.
