The most common problem with that kind of change is networking. People 
forget to open up firewalls, don't have routes from their clients, etc.

When you mirror between datacenters, the clients will be connecting to 
both. This will amplify any latency so if that's bad your writes, 
lookups, etc. will suffer.
