FreeBSD HA with mySQL

Posted on 2006-05-12

I am looking for a FreeBSD HA solution that is similar to Linux-HA with DRBD.

DRBD looks really attractive, but we do not typically use Linux.  I did see a few similar solutions but most of them were extremely experimental.  Looking for a solution that is commonly used in production and is used by large organizations.

We are considering mySQL replication but DRBD offers some attractive solutions to the limitations.

    Accepted Solution

    RAW disk replication over network is not available.
    Network interface best moved around with CARP protocol in base system.

    Assisted Solution

    Is coda one of the choice ?

    To my bext knowledge, drbd also does not allow writting on the same time on multiple node. Whereby, GFS is the one that support this features but is also linux only.
