Can you be more specific?

Exchanges route messages to queues, not nodes. Contents of mirrored queues
is replicated but when you consume a message from a mirrored queue, all
copies are gone.

You can have N queues bound to a fanout and then your clients can connect
to any nodes to consume from them. When a node goes down or becomes
unavailable, clients should reconnect to another node and continue
consuming from the same queue.
