MySQL 5.1 Clustering Might Just Actually Work

As I previously wrote mysql 5.0 clustering was a big issue for us since all data as placed in memory. It seems that mysql 5.1 clustering is going to be much better, including the ability to store non-index columns on disk (indexes and indexed columns are still stored in-memory), do (limited) cluster-to-cluster replication, and better varchar support for memory columns. Pitty it's only release candidate at the moment. can't wait for the GA to come out.
