Hello everyone, I am planning an installation of FIWARE lab. Due to the high core count of the AMD EPYC architecture we were thinking about going with an EPYC based system. My question is whether there is an obvious downside or something that an EPYC systems lacks for a proper FIWARE lab installation.

I think that it is a low level question that need to be resolved at the level of the Operating System. You have to keep in mind that FIWARE Lab is running OpenStack and it usually is running over the proper Operating System. Our recommendation is going with ubuntu so you have to be sure that the current LTS version of Ubuntu (16.04) can work without problem with this architecture.

More recent version of Ubuntu (or other OS), does not allow to to assume that it would be adopted in short time with the corresponding OpenStack version. Take care about it.
