    Best way to setup MySQL failover


    Hello!

    Today I have an old MySQL failover-cluster configured with DRBD and corosync. I'm going to configure two new servers that I'm going to use as a new MySQL failover-cluster but I was wondering which solution is the best?

    Are there any other ways to configure a reliable failover for MySQL? Is there a way to have the data synchronized in another way than DRBD (I don't have central storage)?

    Actually the failover part I could fix pretty easily, it's just the storage that I want to have up to date on two hosts at the same time.


    So what do you say? Is DRBD the way to go or is there a smarter solution?


    Thanks.
