    So now there are three different plugins available:
    - MultiDB from WPMUdev Premium
    - HyperDB, automattic
    - SharDB, Ron from WPMUtutorials

    Could anyone clearify or shed some light on:
    - differences?
    - similarities?
    - pros and cons?
    - probabaility to be used on 3.0 ?
    - easy of installation and upgrades?

    Well, two of them are free, so it's easy enough to read the direction on each plugin, and I know Ron did an extensive post on the blog.

    Thanks Andrea :)
    I was waiting for the migration utility to come out.

    Also how is WP 3 going to affect this plugin? (will it work? will it break? will it create wormholes and space-time loops?)

    Ron has been swamped lately, poor guy.

    When the RC-1 comes out, he'll test it, but isn't expecting any show-stoppers.

    Quick note: in 3.0 enable the network *before* adding SharDB.
