PG clustering

Just wondering - is there something similar to this
(clustering) for PostgreSQL? If so, how does it
compare?

TIP 2: you can get off all lists at once with the unregister command
(send "unregister YourEmailAddressHere" to ma*******@postgresql.org)

Marketing... they're lying the hell out of anything.
"mission critical business apps" *muhahaha*
"640K are enough for everybody" "nobody needs transactions" ;)

afaik, with clustering you can in theory improve read
spead and with luck reliability (according to reads)
but at the cost of write speed and write reliablility.

Mental note to postgres developers:
- when WAL files could be read over network as well,
might clustering in the above sense maybe implemented
by replicating WAL files and until replicated
accessing them over the net?
(Just wild spinning of thougts, sorry)
