I am looking at creating a MySQL cluster as a back end to a site I am in the process of setting up. The hosting company I am with prefers virtual machines, in particular VMWare virtual machines. I just read the mysql-cluster faq's found here
and saw that it is not recommended to run a mysql cluster on virtual machines. Is this true? or can you in fact run a mysql cluster on something other than physical machines? Has anyone tried to run a mysql cluster on VMs before?
