If you really mean geographic redundancy, then I do hope you have some real 
nice fat low-latency pipes between those 2 data centers, otherwise _any_ 
solution involving synchronous replication is just going to make your users 
real unhappy.

You mean will DRBD replication/resync bite a major chunk off your web 
application's performance? If you configure DRBD and MySQL correctly, no. 

You might want to have a chat with a MySQL Professional Services consultant on 
that matter. DRBD is a fully supported MySQL Enterprise add on. See
