How will memory requirement change when for K-safety value increase.


For example, if database size is 1 TB for k-safety=0. If we set k-safety=1, will the database size go upto 2 TB.

As I understand, there will be exact copies of data. It is not something like RAID-5, calculating parities, is this correct ?


thanks
