Possible perlmonks mirrors?
I know MySQL won't do two way replication, so that option is out. Another option to improve performance would be clustering. I did a brief search at mysql.com and found that there are cluster solutions available on Solaris, AIX and SCO. I also did a google search but I didn't come up with much. Anyone know if there is a BSD + MySQL clustering solution? If anyone found one I would be more than willing to help out.
I know that we run on BSD now but if we ever switched to Linux there are two(warning that’s a pdf) solutions we could use.
1. This is more of a curiosity question than anything else, as I think a cluster / the effort required to maintain one would be overstepping our bounds with the gracious service that pair provides us.
2. Just to keep everything on the up and up, I do work for one of the companys I linked to. But am I in no way suggesting that PM buy into a proprietary, closed source, (maintenance nightmare) solution.
