Hi Joan
replication is actually more functional in MySQL Cluster than with InnoDB:
- You have support for synchronous replication between data nodes within 
the cluster.
- If you want to replicate that cluster to a remote data center (or 
another rack within the same data center), then you can use MySQL's 
native asynchronous replication, but unlike InnoDB, this is 
Active/Active, so the cluster will detect and handle conflicts for you

MySQL Cluster does not support Foreign Keys today.  You can use triggers 
as an alternative - this article demonstrates how to do that:

Are your Foreign Key requirements for constraint checking, or do you 
need functionality like cascading updates and deletes as well?
