Hi Sergei, I'm not sure what the implementation of QuorumVerifier you have in mind would look like to make your setting work. Even if you don't have partitions, variation in message delays can cause inconsistencies in your ZooKeeper cluster. Keep in mind that we make the assumption that quorums intersect.

We are currently evaluating use of ZK in our infrastructure. In our
setup we have a set of servers running from two different power feeds.
If one power feed goes away so does half of the servers. This makes
problematic to configure ZK ensemble that would tolerate such outage.
The network partitioning is not an issue in our case. The only solution
I come up with so far is to provide custom QuorumVerifier that will add
a little premium in case if all servers in the quorum set are from the
same group. Basically if we have only half of votes but all of them
belong to the same group then we decide to have a quorum.
Any ideas or better solutions are very appreciated. Sorry if this has
been already discussed/answered.
