No JBODs

“Death to JBODs” - that's what we say.

Our “shared nothing” architecture replicates storage between the nodes in the cluster. This eliminates single points of failure in the storage cluster.

This is far superior to HA solutions that employ head nodes accessing a JBOD - which itself is a single point of failure.
