Is it a good idea to run week 5 exercise on Ubuntu 20.04 VM? What are the things I have to be careful about if I want to run cass-operator this way?

Hi @vaish,

yes, you can definitely run the week 5 exercises on a Unbuntu 20.04 VM. The main issue to look out for is the need to allocate sufficient memory to your VM.

Have a look at this user's experience with Ubuntu 20.04, and our answers, I believe this will be helpful:

I hope this helps!

To add to Bettina's answer, we recommend machines with at least 16GB of memory. It might work on a machine with 12GB but you will eventually run into resource issues.

In the workshop we only provided instructions for configuring KiND clusters on RHEL/CentOS distributions. You might be interested in this post I've published for Debian distros -- How to setup KinD on Ubuntu to run the Kubernetes cass-operator. Cheers!
