[DRBD-user] do I really need heartbeat for DRBD?

Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Is heartbeat really necessary to use DRBD?

I just want to replicate an array/disk/volume from one datacenter to 
another, but I don't need any heartbeat's features - so perhaps 
heartbeat is not necessary?

On the other hand, documentation mentions heartbeat a lot.

Can I use DRBD without heartbeat?
