Local Disks

Local disks are the disks that are only connected to a single cluster node. Local disks are therefore not protected against node failure (they are not highly available). However, all disks, including local disks, are included in the global namespace and are configured as global devices. Therefore, the disks themselves are visible from all cluster nodes.

See the section Global Devices for more information about global devices.
