  • The short answer is no. Even though you could argue that the primary objective of fencing is to protect your data, and that you have no shared storage, fencing also helps keep you cluster "sane". You'll otherwise end up with "split brain" and and other strange events.
    I'd even go as far as to try and have quorum disk with my fencing even if I don't have a need for shared storage file system between my system.
