Ok Brian;

I read about NDBClusters but the info I found said it would only run on linux and solaris. No 

I didn´t know of mysql replication ! I´ll check into it too, but what i´ve been reading about vinum 
so far has impressed me a lot, specially in terms of not only mirroring the database but most 
anything you want.

Maybe I´ll try to replicate the database on vinum volumes to get the best service performance from 
mysql, with the "failsafetyness" of vinum mirrors.

Thanks for your help,
