Supercluster with JetStream

When configuring and deploying a supercluster that contains JetStream-enabled servers, one server across the entire supercluster is elected to handle JetStream API requests specifically for the placement of streams and consumers.

This server is considered the leader of this meta/API layer. Since this is a Raft group as well, electing a leader requires a quorum across servers. What this means in practice is that there needs to be an odd number of servers across the supercluster.

Supercluster deployments with JetStream-enabled servers should include at least three clusters or use the arbiter pattern.

This example will demonstrate how to configure a minimal supercluster of three single-node clusters. Of course, for a production deployment it is recommended to have three nodes per cluster to support R3 streams.
