Hardware Scale

Posted at — Jan 6, 2016

I need to get some hard facts but one thing that is bothering me about hardware costs is that, all other components being equal, 4x16GB systems costs less than 1x64GB system. I ask the question because I want to build a small cluster of CoreOS systems but realizing that in the long run it might be advantageous to have bare metal and local systems I started thinking about costs.
