Model metadata (mostly parameter values) are usually tiny. The parquet data
is most often for model coefficients. So this depends on the size of your
model, i.e. Your feature dimension.

A high-dimensional linear model can be quite large - but still typically
easy to fit into main memory on a single node. A high-dimensional
multi-layer perceptron with many layers could be quite a lot larger. An ALS
model with millions of users &I items could be quite huge.
