Anaconda platform components run on clusters, which are groups of machines listed in a cluster profile.

Cluster profile

A cluster profile defines the cluster’s name, its machine nodes and other options such as security and network settings.

One are more cluster profiles are defined during Adam installation, just before creating the cluster.

Cluster profiles are located in the ~/.continuum/adam/profile.d/ directory.

Cluster definition

A cluster definition identifies information about a running cluster, including the cluster name, nodes in the cluster and other platform component options. Cluster definitions are located in the ~/.continuum/adam/cluster.d/ directory.

Air gap installation
