Raid 6, setting up for performance issues?

Explorer

Deploying new indexers and trying maximize the storage we have. Raid 6 was configured on 15K SAS drives for Hot/Warm buckets and Raid 6 on 10K SAS drives for Cold Buckets. We average around just under 250 GB of data / day. I keep reading to have Hot/Warm on Raid 10. So am I setting myself up for performance issues here?

Yes. It's very likely.

Yes, you are setting yourself up for potential performance problems at that ingest rate.

If you can do Raid 10 instead for hot/warm buckets, that would be best.

Supposing, I wonder, whereby I found my self lost, that my internal dialogue was in fact a configuration 6 of Raid. I thusly found myself feeling ill, as I had lost parity of my own thoughts, and slowly began to rebuild my nervous system of coherent thought. For while my thoughts worked correctly, I feel fine. At the mere mention of an unstable coaxial connection, I immediately began to slow and consume more resources to rebuild myself. I couldn't keep up with both the sensory input and the internal rebuild. I began to backlog until I crashed. Upon waking, I found myself in a corrupted state, even more so than most politicians. Wearily I tell you, begin your life in the 1+0 of Raid, and happier shall you be.
