Actually it uses less space than -c 2, that is 50% more space for redundancy.
But -c 2:2 need at least 4 nodes to generate full parities. If you only have 3
nodes, it means you are generating 1 parity instead of 2 like running cluster
with one node down. Once you add 4th node, the missing parity will be genearted.
