It depends how you are defining "Cluster".

I generally think of it as mutliple processes that are coordinating and
using some kind of consesous algorithm. (IE Zookeeper). Perhaps my
definition is wrong, or differs from yours.

You can ofcourse achieve durability, high availability, and scale using

100 application servers with embedded flume agents
10 downstream flume servers performing aggregations and writes to hdfs

Events first come to fruition at the webserver, and are ingested by the
flume embedded agent local to each appserver
appserver flume sends events to the downstream flume aggregate tier, if one
of the 10 servers are unvailable, it trys the next
Finally events are written to HDFS by the aggregate tier

The agents that are aggreating events can be in different availability

You can also replicate events and write to multiple downstream consumers,
route based on contents of the event, etc.

Is there something in particular you are hoping to accomplish? I think with
a more specific question, you will get a better answer
