Kafka: Multiple smaller RAID 10's or one large one?

Kafka: Multiple smaller RAID 10's or one large one?

Hi All,

If you had 3 brokers with 16 disks each, would it be best to create two x 8 disk arrays on each broker, or four x 4 disk arrays (talking RAID 10 here)?  Or does it matter much?  Both would provide fault tolerance for a single failed disk.  Thank you.
