over quickly if the primary server fails (high availability), or to allow

               High Availability and Load Balancing

Database servers can work together to allow a second server to take over
quickly if the primary server fails (high availability), or to allow several
computers to serve the same data (load balancing). Ideally, database servers
could work together seamlessly. Web servers serving static web pages can be
combined quite easily by merely load-balancing web requests to multiple
machines. In fact, read-only database servers can be combined relatively
easily too. Unfortunately, most database servers have a read/write mix of
requests, and read/write servers are much harder to combine. This is because
though read-only data needs to be placed on each server only once, a write
to any server has to be propagated to all servers so that future read
requests to those servers return consistent results.  This synchronization
problem is the fundamental difficulty for servers working together. Because
there is no single solution that eliminates the impact of the sync problem
for all use cases, there are multiple solutions.
