Any articles on why you should use JBOD vs RAID6 on the Data Nodes. I am new to Hadoop/Hortonworks (but reading everything I can) and we still in our planning stages. We are initially going to purchase 4 servers each with (16) 10TB SATA disks. I know you are supposed to use JBOD but some other admins (who have not yet done the research into Hadoop) are saying they want to use RAID6. Because we are all new I am looking for some info on recommended configurations or why a RAID wouldn't be ideal. Thanks!
