What is the best way to partition RAID 10 Disk of 20TB for Hot/Warm/Cold Buckets on each indexer in an indexer cluster?

Contributor

I have about 20TB of disk space for each indexer in a cluster deployment with the total of two indexers. What are the best ways to partition this much space for hot/warm/cold buckets? Should I also stick with one bigger RAID 10 deployment for all of these buckets, or should I divide it for hot bucket for writing (1st RAID) and warm/cold buckets for searching (2nd RAID)?

I'd do one big 1+0 per indexer, then moving warm to cold will only be a rename and not an actual copy.

I'll +1(0) that!

Thanks, that's what we were thinking would be the best solution.
