MySQL Master/Master Replication

hi all,

I set up an architecture composed of two MySQL databases. I want to make the best use of my resources in term of availability and performance in a replication context.

First of all, it is important to keep in mind that the structure of my databases will no be altered after the initial deployment of my application. Therefore I thought to deploy my two MySQL databases in multimaster mode. This solution was preferred because it does not imply any change for my application. It is a prerequisite in my architecture.

However, I have the impression that MySQL does not promote this type of replication in a production context. MySQL argues that Master/Master replication works, but I need to be sure it can be use safely. Do you know such a deployment in a production context?

MySQL allows me to work around my issue using the MySQL Proxy for example, through which I could redirect the readings to a slave and writings to a master. However, since the proxy is not yet finalized, I do not think it is a reliable option for Master/Master replication. In a production context, what solution do you suggest to ensure better performance and availability if I have two nodes and I am not able to modify the application to redirect queries according to the type of request? Is Master/Slave replication really the only reliable solution?
