      Description

      Currently we have a batch of servers, each broker has one SSD (1.5T) and ten HDDs (10T). For all I know, Kafka itself doesn't know much about the underlying hardware, it chooses the directory with the least number of partitions when creating a topic-partition.

      Is it possible to deploy a heterogeneous cluster for taking advantage of SSD with smaller disk capacity? Hope you all consider this. Any insights or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
