I've been developing my multi-site on a shared Go-Daddy hosting account. It's time to launch our first beta. I want to prepare for growth and therefore use your multi-db. I have quite a few of your plugins already, but since I want to use Anti-Splog, Support System & Supporter all of which require global table lines inserted with multi-db, I thought it best to do all of it now. (I have test installed the 3 plugins on another multisite test site but not in a multi-db.
Since I also need a new hosting provider, I contacted your recommended provider, WPEngine. They do not allow the use of multi-db. They told me they provide a service called "MYSQL Cluster" which replicates files. What is your opinion on this? Is it technically the same or should I find an alternate provider that allows for the utilization of Multi-db? If I went with them, if they did not meet our needs and we needed to migrate off, I'm not certain what structure would have been created with their process. Any thoughts?
