Are you using clustering for redundancy or for sharding/scaling? For
redundancy, the current built-in replication is the easiest to set up
with no add-ons needed. You may find it very beneficial to engage a
PostgreSQL-savvy consultant or firm who has encountered your use-pattern
and can guide you.

You might see what Heroku offers: https://postgres.heroku.com/
I haven't used them as we run all our own servers but they have been
kind hosts for our users-group in SF.
