Which is the OS reaction to a locked storage?  It's transparent or could
lead to FS issue?
What would happen if healing starts in the middle of a write, for example
when MySQL flush to disks?

Let's assume a 100gb image sharded (10mb) in a replica 3 on a 3 nodes
the image is split in 10.000 pieces, stored in all servers (replica 3)
If a server goes down, the whole VM needs to be healed , thus the whole vm
is locked

Shard is useful on single brick failures, that could be avoided by using
raid, non for server failure
