RAID or HDFS File System
Because VectorH stores its data in HDFS, we recommend letting HDFS manage the redundancy and performance that comes with multiple drives. However, for non-HDFS data (the operating system and the VectorH binaries) we recommend using a RAID file system (either RAID1 or RAID5, implemented in either hardware or software) for high availability of the nodes.
