Hi all,

I have been running a DRDB-8 simple 3 node disaster recovery set up of 
libvirt VMs for a number of years and have been very happy with it.   
Our needs are simple, 2 servers on Protocol C, each running a handful of 
VMs as primary and replicated to the other, and both stacked to a third 
server via protocol A for disaster recover/point in time backups (I run 
my nightly backups off of the tertiary node so as to limit the impact on 
the two primary servers.)

Now my hardware needs replacing and it looks like DRBD 8 is no longer 
available?    We are not Amazon, we do not need a full cluster with all 
it's bells and whistles, the classic DRBD8 three node setup still works 
for me.

My question is whether DRBD8 is still "supported"and whether there are 
good reasons to move to DRBD9?
