Subject Re: Pyramid Organization of Data

I'm familiar with this material.  I hadn't thought of it from this
angle but I believe what you're suggesting is that the different data
centers would hold a different properties file for node discovery
instead of using auto-discovery.

So Tokyo, and others, would have a configuration that make it
oblivious to the non New York data centers.
New York would have a configuration that would give it knowledge of no
other data center.

Would that work?  Wouldn't the NY data center wonder where these other
writes are coming from?
