With ARMv9 on the horizon, we’d like to experiment more with its adoption in the production environment as a DB host.
I’d like to ask your opinion about setting up Dgraph on low-powered ARMs (smth like Raspberry PI4 1.5GHz 8Gb RAM) on regionally distributed premises.
Initially I’m thinking about a cluster of 3-4 PI4s (each 8Gb RAM + SSD) for every premise. Therefore, sharding will be done on a regional-premises basis.
I already launched a Dgraph on such a cluster and it works just fine.
The on-premise information load isn’t expected to be very high.
Although in theory and in prototype it works, but it’d be great to know your opinion about issues we may incur during production implementation (as hardware used is below recommended configuration… but our information loads are also not big) + may be smbd has a similar experience on #ARM.
