Erasure Coding (N+1/N+3/N+5)
The Pivot3 Acuity platform leverages patented Erasure Coding technology. Pivot3 Acuity Erasure Coding requires at least 3 nodes in a vPG. Pivot3 Acuity Erasure Coding is configured on a per volume basis, so EC levels can be mixed within the same vPG.

Configurable Erasure Coding levels:
EC1: Protects against 1 disk failure event OR 1 node failure event.
EC3: Protects against 3 simultaneous disk failure events OR 1 drive failure event + 1 node failure event.
EC5: Protects against 5 simultaneous disk failure events OR 2 drive failure events + 1 node failure event.
