Preference is of course only given to opensource solutions. How do you choose between: MySQL replication, MHA, DRBD, Tungsten, Galera Cluster? Do you integrate Pacemaker and Heartbeat like Percona Replication Manager? Is NDB Cluster right for your workload? The cloud brings even more fun as geographical redundancy is rolled into this. There are now even “modern” tools to assist in automation like Orchestrator, Consul, MariaDB MaxScale & MySQL Router.
