Two smartstore S3 objects in single indexer cluster

We are planning to move to Smartstore for the cold storage and we are having the on-prem multisite indexer cluster. We are having two S3 object storage created with our partners.

Can I point out the two different S3 object storage to each site? (I know the suggested solution is to have a single indexer cluster should have single S3 object storage)

What would be the best way to migrate from On-prem to Smartstore. Our configuration around 10 indexers with each 10 TB of data on the daily volume of 300 GB/day.

Thanks in advance!

Your indexer cluster should use a single object store for S2.  Use the second as a replicate/backup, but do so in a manner transparent to Splunk.  See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.1.1/Indexer/MultisiteSmartStore#Deploy_multisite_inde...
