comment Website high availability without load-balancer?
@MadHatter that's not the current set-up (which distributes the load) but it is what I mean by "If load-balancing was not a requirement", yes

comment Website high availability without load-balancer?
@MadHatter is there an obvious alternative that doesn't involve IP sharing between locations (which is out of our budget range)?

comment RAID 0 InnoDB speed - Comparing 8 x 7,200 RPM drives or 4 x 15,000 RPM drives
8x7200 will have roughly the same average rotational latancy as 4x15k. However rotational latency isn't the only variable in seek time, plus there's a whole bunch of other factors affecting overall performance.
