In data management world, there are two way to make multiple servers to work together: sharding and replication.

Sharding is to distributer different types of data to different servers, such as in a book store, you put fiction, drama, sci-fi into different sections.

Replication is to put all data into different server, each computers contains same data and application. It is like you open up more book stores, each book stores has same collections of books.

Comparing to other enterprise application such as Amazon or Facebook, blockchain has much less data and require higher availability and security. Therefore, replication is preferred than sharding in settlement layer computing architecture. Multiple nodes to mine on same blockchain is a good example of replication. This design philosophy shall be used in most of blockchain applications such as wallet, payment network and exchange.

Even when sharding is required, it has to be sharding under replication layers for blockchain.
