I can offer up  
and about half a dozen others. All of these sites are backed by a single
postgresql 7.1 database

By the end of this month all of the communities based around our
SiftGroups platform ( ) will be backed by postgresql.

We have been migrating from MySQL and the intial results so far are
extremely promising. ( It has only been live for 4 days, mind ).
As the database developer I can say that in many ways we had reached a
point with MySQL where we were struggling to scale it efficiently. We
expect these problems to be overcome by using postgresql.
