[rt-users] Failover/Loadbalance

Mysql's clustering probably wouldn't be much good for RT, last I heard
their clustering solution required your entire dataset to be loaded into
RAM, so unless you have a very small database (or A LOT of RAM) this
probably wont work.

Mysql also offers replication, using a single master and many slaves, I
believe this would however require a bit of work in RT3, as it would
need separate database handles for reads and writes I believe.
