Morning Gents:

Not sure how we clustered what we did, but this fellow from the user's

using MySQL with Galera clustering (http://galeracluster.com):

I used MySQL (percona) in a Galera cluster running on each DHCP server to achieve HA.
Worked like a charm.
But use whatever you are familiar with if that works for your scenario
(I've never done a PostgreSQL cluster and it is rumored to be PITA :)).
