For example, with 2 server and 8 SATA disk each, I can create a single XFS
filesystem for every disk and then creating a replicated bricks for each.

For example:

server1:brick1 => server2:brick1
server1:brick2 => server2:brick2

and so on.
After that, I can use these bricks to create a distributed volume.
In case of a disk failure, I have to heal only on disk at time and not the
whole volume, right?
