But we glossed over many technical details surrounding howthe data is distributed and fetched from the cluster. This separation is doneon purpose -- you don't really need to know how data is distributed to workwith Elasticsearch. It just works. In this chapter, we are going to dive into those internal, technical detailsto help you understand how your data is stored in a distributed system. > ### 内容警告 The information presented below is for your interest.
