There is a reason why the Veritas Volume Manager supports 32way mirroring. They had a customer ask for it. Said customer has 8 Data Center's (SIC) buried under 8 mountain ranges in 8 corners of their continent. At each data centre you need 4 copies, 2 for mirroring, a 3rd to split off for backup and the fourth so you can alternate the merge back, so there is always yesterdays data available too.
