Why does the Varada Control Center need local storage?

The Varada Control Center must be installed on a machine with local NVMe-based SSDs in order to process the data required to visualize your cluster activity.

The Varada Control Center’s main dashboard‍ presents a high-level picture of the activity in your clusters. From the dashboard, you can drill down to detailed information, such as the popularity of tables and the resource consumption of users, and use this information to validate that acceleration instructions are effectively accelerating high-priority workloads.
