hi everyone, I plan to build my own infrastructure and want to experiment with a harvester. I am new to this stuff so my question can be a bit basic. For the hardware, is there any minimum node to be applied? and each node needs how many cores minimum? I checked the documentation and it said 16-cores and above? Also, for the memory, do we need to separate data and OS to different SSD/NVME, or do partition in a single memory is ok-ish?

Here 16 cores or more is the recommended configuration to use for a better experience. https://docs.harvesterhci.io/v1.1/install/requirements#hardware-requirements
Used for experiments with at least 3 nodes
Harvester storage uses Longhorn, which supports the partitioning of a single store.

alright, thanks @fierce-dinner-66765
hey @fierce-dinner-66765 I have other questions
1. Can Harvester/Longhorn use two different types of storage, such as using SSD for the Harvester OS and HDD for data instances, or does it require using one type only (all SSD or all HDD)?
2. If we install more than one storage disk, does the system need to operate in RAID or can it be used in JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks) mode without RAID?
