That'w how it works. But you should be able to read/write data managed by
other datanodes, even when one datanode is down. For replicated tables, you
should be able to read from the replicated table, but not write to it. This
is because we don't have any mechanism (yet) to resync replicated tables on
a failed datanode.

We recommend setting up a streaming replica of a datanode and failover in
case of the datanode failure.
