Please find below a potential design for Disk & RAID configuration for a typical 12 disk Server running NiFi. This design is intended for a simple log ingestion use case, where customer needs very little provenance records, but would also like reliability on the storage layer.

FlowFile repo: 2 drives setup as RAID 1

Provenance repo: 2 Drives RAID 1

Content repo setup either:

4 drives (RAID 10) /cont_repo1

4 drives (RAID 10) /cont_repo2


2 drives (RAID 1) /cont_repo1

2 drives (RAID 1) /cont_repo2

2 drives (RAID 1) /cont_repo3

2 drives (RAID 1) /cont_repo4
