I've found that the replication and High Availability features are the most valuable. It doesn't reclaim disk space when rows are deleted.

What other advice do I have?

My general advice, which is for any database really, is to plan ahead and design the database accordingly and, over a period of time, tweak the configurations in the my.cnf file.
