Subject Kafka disk recommendation for production cluster
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2018 13:31:18 GMT
Hi All,

I was wondering what the disk recommendation is for Kafka cluster? Is it
acceptable to use RAID0 in the case that replication is 3? We are running
on a cloud infrastructure and disk failure is addressed at another level,
so the chance of single disk failure would be very low. Besides, our
version of Kafka does not fully support JBOD as even a single disk failure
can stop a Kafka broker, so we will not get the actual benefit of using
JBOD anyway. However, I am not quite sure how software raid acts in this
situation as there is no option to use HW Raid on cloud.

Regards,
Ali
