Besides storage targets, DRBD is also very popular for databases,
it is widely used with PostgreSQL and MySQL. It is advertised by both
database projects, to use their DB on top of DRBD to form HA clusters.

Raw numbers of installations:

We have an opt-in global usage counter. See http://www.drbd.org/usage/year/
If we assume that 30% of all users agree that their DRBD installation gets
counted, then we have more then 12000 new installations in April.
(4245 Installations where counted)

It seems that nowadays most of our users get DRBD through their distributions.
Distributions that include DRBD are (list incomplete):
Debian, Ubuntu, SLES, CentOS
