an interesting question came up recently. how do we want to handle sharding failures?
for example, let us say that i have a 3 nodes clusters of ravendb, serving posts for a blog (just to give some random example). the way the sharding has been setup, we are doing sharding using round robin based on posts (so each post goes to a different machine, and anything related to post goes to the same node as the post). here is how it can be set:
