Yep, big mistake my removing the replication FAQ item. I have re-added a
4.21) What replication solutions are available?
Though "replication" is a single term, there are two major replication
technologies. Multi-master replication allows read/write queries to be
sent to multiple replicated computers. Using this capability has a
serious performance impact. Pgcluster is the most popular such solution
available for PostgreSQL. Master-slave replication allows a single
master to receive read/write queries, with slaves able to accept only
read/SELECT queries. The most popular master-slave PostgreSQL
replication solution is Slony. There are also commercial and
hardware-based replication solutions available.
