We want to create a 4 node Community Edition Cluster with 2 (or 4) SSD´s per Node. How will the SSDs be managed by the node.

Will the first 2 SSD´s get mirrored? Could we use 4 SSD´s of the same size (1TB) or should we use 2 smaller SSDs (256GB) and 2 bigger SSDs (1TB). What would you suggest?

Could someone explain to us the Disk usage? Will always be created a mirror of disks?

Thanks for your answers.

It's software defined storage. There is no "raid" or "mirroring" in the traditional sense.

You need a minimum 500gb drives.

It will replicate across data nodes, not on the same node.
