No mutual trust between peers.  The shards that trust each other live 
within a single rack owned by a single peer.  Trust does not extend 
outside that rack.

The sharding is to enable peers to be big enough.

The shards are not peers.

The clients are not peers

Scaling is achieved by multiple hierarchies each splitting the problem 
in different dimensions.
