ThoughtSpot engineering has performed extensive testing of the ThoughtSpot appliance on various Azure configurations for best performance, load balancing, scalability, and reliability.

You can find information here on which configuration of memory, CPU, storage, and networking capacity you should be running for your instances. There are also details on how to configure your scope and permissions.

Hardware configurations

The following Azure resources are required for provisioning a Thoughtspot image in Azure:

  • Virtual Machine Size: Standard E64s v3 (64 vcpus, 432 GB memory)
  • Storage: Two 1TB SSD disks
  • 200 GB required root volume capacity for each node
  • Network Ports: See PORTS SETTINGS

Data capacity per node

ThoughtSpot sizes nodes in multiples of 200 GB of data in Azure. This size refers to the amount of data in the CSV files you will be loading into ThoughtSpot. The 200GB number takes into account all replication of data done automatically by ThoughtSpot to provide redundancy and fast performance.

You can start with 200 GB, and add increments of 200 GB each time your data capacity needs increase. You can also choose to start off with more than 200 GB of data, as long as you know the best fit configuration for your data volume.
