A good starting place for you would be the PostgreSQL manual, specifically
the chapter called "High Availability":

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/interactive/high-availability.html

. also Pgpool:

            http://pgfoundry.org/projects/pgpool/

. and Slony:

Subject: [SQL] setting up a mirroring or replication database

 

Hi Team,
 
    We are using Postgres 8.1.0 and in the plans to migrate to 8.2.3.   Ours
is a OLTP application.  Publishers, advertisers and consumers use our system
world wide.  Right now it's not a very big database. But we are expanding
our operations to Europe and US where we are expecting a moster growth.
 
    I want to setup a mirroring database or replications database so that if
one database crash, the load balancing database should take care or it.  Not
only that, if I am upgrading one database, the other should take the load. 
 
    I have never set this kind of replication or mirroring the database
before.  What are the steps and procedures to do this kind of setup.
 
   Please advise.
 
Regards
skarthi
