If you just need a second machine updated daily then just do a
pg_dumpall from the master and restore it on the second machine (all
automated from cron).
Alternately, in 8.x you can copy the master's files to the second
machine and then just use the WAL files to keep the second machine

For near real-time replication you can use a replication solution like
All of the above assume that all modifications to the database are
done to the master and simply duplicated one way or another to a
There are also projects that act as connection-pooling and
