We've updated the terms we use to talk about PE reference architecture types, and are no longer using the term "monolithic."
Version and installation information
PE version: 2019.2.0
|Configuration||Nodes||Former name||New name|
|All infrastructure components on the master.||Up to 4,000||Monolithic||Standard|
|All infrastructure components on the master, plus one or more compilers and a load balancer.||4,000 to 20,000||Monolithic with compilers||Large|
|All infrastructure components on the master, plus one or more compilers and a load balancer, plus a separate node which hosts the PE-PostgreSQL instance.||More than 20,000||Monolithic with compilers and standalone PE-PostgreSQL||Extra large|
Please note that a Standard Support Plan, one of the two levels of commercial support available from Puppet, is not restricted to PE instances using a standard reference architecture. "Standard" in this case refers to the support level, not the size of the PE installation.
