Sharding clusters oh my

If I was planning on large growth and needing high performance, how could i allocate indexing, sharding and the inverse, searching.

My candidates for division are:
1/ geocoordinates
2/ locale/original-untranslatedd klnguage
3/ date/time
4/ tags

If I locate swrvers at different amazon ec2 centers there are 5 zones per center in the USA. I would want full duplication between centers in 'eventual' mode, with each having geographical related data.

As far as I know only custom sharding is available within elasticsearch. An I right, there's no way to control division to nodes jn a cluater or to clusters either?
