Subject Re: EC2 raid0 disks ?
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2011 01:18:43 GMT
Thanks guys.

btw, what is the performance difference between doing a raid0 on the
multiple ephemeral drives available, and then assign it to cassandra
data directory, vs creating a mount on each of these drives, and then
specify all of these to cassandra's data directory list?

since these drives are all virtual, would there be any benefit at all
in doing a raid0 ?
