Hardware Specifications for the Access Node

You must have at least one access node for Kubernetes. For faster backups and restores, you can add more access nodes.

The hardware specifications for access nodes are as follows:

  • 2 x vCPUs
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 100 MB of local disk space for the Commvault software
  • 1GbE network interface for backup data

Automatic Load Balancing Across Access Nodes

To manage your growing Kubernetes data, Commvault does not recommend increasing the hardware specifications of your access node. Instead, you can add additional access nodes (with identical hardware specifications) to your Kubernetes hypervisor. The Commvault software performs automatic load balancing across the access nodes.
