I wouldn't be concerned more about the performance with this configuration
I'm looking more form a maintenance perspective - I have to draft some
maintenance for our infrastructure team whom are used to a standard NAS
storage setup which Cassandra obviously breaks.

Ultimately, would keeping the cassandra service separate from the data
and/or commit logs benefit from a recovery perspective where if we lose the
primary partition, we could restore that from the data that is still on the

What it considered best practice?
What kind of routine health checks are best to look for daily? monthly?

Basically how do you up-skill a technical infrastructure team to be able to
maintain a Cassandra node ring?
