MySQL can be deployed in several ways, and that means you can choose a tailor-made path that best meets your needs.

Selecting the most appropriate solution for a MySQL HA infrastructure is as much a business and philosophical decision as it is a technical one, but often the choice is made without adequately considering all three perspectives.
