I would be interested especially in different approaches to implementing 
failover.  Are there any frameworks that can provide this transparently to 
the application?

For storage, I know there is MySQL cluster, but it requires using tables w/the 
cluster engine, which is not the same as Innodb--where all the goody features 
are.  So, it has to either be done in the application layer at the dispatch, 
or underneath via the network infrastructure (tricks with dns, routing 
tables, whatever).
