I read the possibility to use drbd with external locking for mysql on the
web but I doubted it. I thought that these people have more experience than
me but now I know that my suspects were true!

I used NDB many years ago. But, if I remember well, it requires another
server to manage the cluster, but I forgot totally what is the way to
configure it.

Thank you for your help, for your time and thank you for the video. Now it
is starting to become all clearer. :)
