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:

I haven't used them as we run all our own servers but they have been 
kind hosts for our users-group in SF.
