Three node replica - preferred to two as quorum works best with a odd 
number of nodes. If storage on a third node is an issue then use an 
arbiter node.


I use sharding with 65MB shards, it makes for very fast efficient heals. 
Just one brick per node, but each brick is 4 disks in ZFS Raid 10 with a 
fast SSD log device.
