Were thinking about using multiple data directories each with its own disk and are currently testing this against a RAID0 config.

Ive seen that there is failure handling with multiple JBOD.


We have two data directories mounted to separate drives



One of the drives fails

Will Cassandra continue to work?

How will it handle requests for data which unavailable?

If I want to add an additional drive what is the best way to go about redistributing the data?
