Yes, I've had a lot of "fun" working around the HA aspect of fabric with Pacemaker and Corosync. It definitely could be a lot easier than it is - there are a ton of gotchas I had to work through. I see the appeal of multi-master.

The main database I was considering when I wrote my questions is part of a vendor application and, yes, it is read heavy. We have very little control over the database and have been discouraged from making changes in the past by being told they would no longer support us even if we just made some index changes. We can suggest those changes to them, but there is no guarantee they'll be implemented.

Unfortunately for horizontal scaling, 1) the application has not and will not be tested with (certified for use with) the fabric-aware connectors and 2) there is no option within the application to direct read/write traffic differently than read-only.

So, my only real option right now is to improve HA (failover right now is manual, with brief downtime). I've been testing mysql fabric with mysql router to allow for automated failover. It seems to work well, but I was concerned that fabric may no longer be supported and I'd have to rework my clusters as InnoDB Clusters in the relatively near future.
