Community Edition Limitation

I would like to know if a 3 nodes cluster using the CE can store data up to 5TB? My understanding is that a single node is limited to 640GB regardless of cluster size. Please advise.


You have a physical limit of 640GiB of unique data per node (so your actual storage will be roughly 4 times that with replication factor 2). With the 8 node max cluster size of CE that gives you 5TiB unique data, so the storage of the cluster should be 20TiB if you use replication factor 2. Yes, drives use base 10 for storage, but to quote wiser people, there is no such thing as base 10 in Aerospike.

This is described in more detail in the Upper Sizing Bounds and Naming limitations page.
