Yes, I figured it out - changed the nickname

my servers are registered locally, since I have several nodes with the
same gen_server.
Then I can communicate with them using gen_server:call/cast to

{node1@REDACTED, my_server}
{node2@REDACTED, my_server}
{nodeN@REDACTED, my_server}

I see that the best solution will be to put all public APIs into
separate application with single module with protocol wrapper
