How much data do you expect to have - amount added per day, number of days
kept, amount of data per trade, number of tradable securities (or whatever
you are trading?

What kind of access patterns do you expect? Like append, any updates, what
queries, any analytics.

Generally, queries and access patterns will drive the data modeling, and
also impact how much data you can realistically place on each node.

What are your HA (High Availability) requirements?
