Assuming 24GB ram per machine, 2 replicas, you would need ~80 DB nodes
to reach 1 TB ... this would be increadibly expensive and seems to me
actually not at all what you are looking for.
The MySQL Cluster provides "In Memory" storage that is also supported by
all the data being saved to disk (unlike other in memory engines).
However, this means that you would have to keep ALL your data in RAM,
ALL the time. (Did I hear Mikael say they are thinking of changing
this???) For a large DB (10-50GB), this could be a huge benefit, but to
one that is 10TB ... it is, as far as I know, impractical at this point
to put that into a cluster.
FYI, we just looked into putting a 75-100GB table into the cluster, but
figured out that we can house the same table by load balancing
traditional InnoDB databases across ~4 servers, rather than across ~16
with the cluster.
