Can my indexer cluster contain a mix of SmartStore and non-SmartStore indexes?

I want to use SmartStore for some indexes but not for others. Can I do that?

Yes. Like most indexing-related settings, you can configure SmartStore on a per-index basis.

A combination of SmartStore and non-SmartStore indexes on a single cluster is sometimes referred to as a "mixed mode" cluster.
