I see a lot of talk about using ndb (Mysql Cluster) here, and while I'm 
not exactly sure of the state of this in MySQL 5.1, still 
says that this is an in-memory storage system. Assuming that is the 
case, then RAID 10 vs RAID 1 on the MySQL data storage nodes will make 
no difference at all.

I could be all wet on this subject, and someone should correct me if I 
am, but this is what I see in your setup.
