QS Introduction SharedStorage

A shared storage cluster utilises an common set of storage devices that are accessible to both nodes in the cluster (housed in a shared JBOD for example). A ZFS pool is created using these devices and access to that pool is controlled by RSF-1.

Pool integrity is maintained by the cluster software using a combination of redundant heartbeating and PGR3 disk reservations to ensures any pool in a shared storage cluster can only be accessed by a single node at any one time.
