Shared nothing (SN) architectures
Spearhead Systems, Marius Pana is a different kind of cloud when compared to most other clouds including the big 3 leaders. We're different in several key aspects one of which is the way we have designed the underlying architecture. cloud is built on a shared nothing architecture. A shared nothing architecture is a distributed computing architecture where each node(server) in a cluster or system is self-contained and independent. This means that each node is responsible for its own storage and processing, and does not share these resources with other nodes.

In this architecture, the nodes communicate with each other by passing messages, rather than sharing data or memory. This allows for better scalability and fault tolerance, as new nodes can be added to the cluster easily without impacting the existing nodes.

A shared nothing architecture is commonly pattern, where applications are deployed on virtual machines or containers that are distributed across multiple physical servers. Each virtual machine or container is self-contained and has its own resources, and can communicate with other instances via the network.

Deploying to does not automatically make your own applications, servers and containers fault tolerant. This is where your own application architecture comes into play: we provide a solid and high performance platform for you to deploy your apps (usually to servers such as virtual machines or containers) in such a way that they benefit from our fault-tolerance, however you must still make sure you have enough servers to handle single node failures. This generally means that your application must be able to handle load across more than a single server.

Overall, a shared nothing architecture is a key design principle for building scalable and highly available cloud-based applications, as it allows for easy scaling and fault tolerance without relying on any single point of failure.
