This is an issue we really need help on and our entire team would be very grateful if you could take a few moments out and help us.

We're looking to scale our database to take 50 million hits a day. We've looked into several options (like Oracle, MS Sql etc) but my sql 5.0 has really caught our attention. The issue with mysql v 4 with respect to clusters was that writing is very inefficient (since one machine has to write to all) but with v 5, I believe this problem has been solved where by reading as well as writing can be done by multiple machines.

We're really looking to implement a mysql cluster as soon as v5 comes out. Thus any advice, feedback, opinions you could give would be really helpful. Some questions we have are:
1. Is v5 really efficient as they make it seem with regard to clustering (i.e. the writing part)?

2. Any things/issues we should be aware of while setting up such a cluster.

3. What is the breaking limit of such a cluster? (i.e. in number of machines)

p.s: we're also looking to hire a DBA. So if you're interested do let us know.
