Hardware recommendation discrepancies

Hi there,

Could someone explain why the [Cisco MapR CPA][1] has specs that are absolutely different from the overall MapR [Planning Cluster Hardware][2]

I get the higher number of cores and the subsequent increase in memory to accommodate the demand created by the extra cores a processor like the Xeon E5-2660 v2 has (10 vs. 6 cores), however, I am very curious to understand:

What is the rationale to deploy 256 GB of RAM on a server with 20 cores, when a server with 12 cores get a recommended memory specification of 48GB?
