IPFS replication factor

From @sciffer on Mon Jan 04 2016 20:41:54 GMT+0000 (UTC)

Does IPFS have builtin replication factor, so that I can be sure that all my files will be available even if a server of mine goes down?
I would like to be able to have availability between a group of servers (without necessarily to query the files for caching - something more suitable for availability of the content itself regardless of caching and whether caching is emptied/overwritten).

It doesn’t at the moment, but the ipfs-cluster tool will offer various ways of pinning objects on multiple nodes: https://github.com/ipfs/notes/issues/58

Let me know if you have more questions about this, or close the issue otherwise :slight_smile:
