Each node type has a set of specifications that defines RAM, storage, and CPU requirements for
different deployment sizes, known as flavors. Refer to the pages of the individual node types for flavor specifications.
flavor is used in OpenStack terminology to define the virtual hardware sizing of a VM,
but the term is used here in the context of any host platform.
On OpenStack you must create a flavor with the specified properties before deploying the VMs;
on VMware you reference the flavor as a configuration property.
The sizes given in this section are the same for all host platforms.
