    In fact, I've never met anyone who had tried the Oracle or DB2 clustering. Even the people who have the money seem to avoid it. Can anyone offer any personal anecdotes about it? Does it work at all?

    Sure it works. The reason you don't hear a lot of anecdotes is that most of the people who can afford it aren't out telling the public how they do it.

    Oracle "clustering" is probably used way more in internal, critical infrastructure, than in external, disposable content servers.

    One of Oracle's advantages is a lot of the high-availability features are builtin, or relatively seamless, whereas products like Postgres require a lot of work to implement the HA that they supposedly support.
