"Replication of data on different sites provides high availability, however, each copy adds more cost and latency. If you try to save money and only have 2 copies, it may lead to a situation where each copy claims to be a good copy and blame others as bad. This is called a split brain.

Thin arbiter volume just maintains information about the bad copy as a whole and not per file and acts as a quorum decision maker. This solution performs much faster than a three-way replica as it participates only in case of failure, only once. Thin arbiter keeps only one file of zero byte to keep information on good and bad copies. As a thin arbiter node does not participate in regular IO operations, it can be hosted on low-end servers or cloud, which saves money and effort.
