I have several Centos 5 web hosting servers with local instances of MySQL that I am looking to segment so that all servers connect to a central MySQL instance. These are web applications doing more reads than writes, and I would like to keep the databases available as much as possible while also keeping the host servers updated. I've been reading the docs at which are informative, but I'd like to know what others have done in practice that have worked for them.
