Well, this is a thing I have to think about. Maybe only one node cannot
give the full service due to load and performance reasons, but I think
the Qdisk is a must in the service for availability reasons. I'll take
note on your recommendation and maybe i change the votes to make the
minimal number of nodes higher, possibly 2.
