Sunlight cluster on AWS
The Sunlight can be deployed directly onto AWS metal servers as on-demand infrastructure. A sunlight cluster is comprised of a minimum of 2 nodes. Each node is an Amazon EC2 metal instance. Once deployed it is a fully functional HCI cluster running within AWS with integrated elastic network support via the AWS Nitro hardware card. Currently Sunlight supports the following metal instances with different hardware configuration:
|Name||vCPU||RAM(GiB)||Local Storage||Network Bandwidth|
|i3.metal||72||512||8 x 1900 NVMe direct attached, EBS on-demand||25 Gbps|
|i3en.metal||96||768||8 x 7500 NVMe direct attached, EBS on-demand||100 Gbps|
|z1d.metal||48||384||2 x 900 NVMe direct attached, EBS on-demand||25 Gbps|
Once deployed, appropriate instance flavours can be created via the Sunlight dashboard to match the resources as defined for the reference AWS instances.
