I understand replication will not work because all the updates must
come from the master, leaving a single point of failure.  I was
refering to MySQL Cluster.


You do loose foreign key constaints with the NDBCLUSTER tables types.
But you don't need all the tables to be ndb.  Only tables that are
updated from the gateway need to be ndb, the rest can be innodb and
replicated to the SQL nodes from a master...  


Earlier this week, i lost my master server and one authserver...  two
authservers and the storage nodes stayed online. No data re-syncing or
updates were needed when the master and fallen authserver came back up a
half an hour later. It was like they never missed a beat...
