    Hello

    Why Mariadb clustering needs minimum 3 servers?

    Is it for the brain split issue;

    I thought that Mariadb had found a solution for this on latest versions....

    Any other reasons?

    Having also 3 servers maybe are not enough as even if a simple update or system restart will leave only two in the cluster for a while.....

    Thank you ! :)
