Does PostgreSQL provide anything comparable with MySQL Cluster?

Hello

Does PostgreSQL provide anything comparable with the functionality of
MySQL Cluster?

I appreciate all information.

Thank you.

No, in two ways:

1. There is not currently any in-transaction cross-machine
replication system which anyone in the community is ready to call
"production grade".

2. No replication system that anyone in the community would call
"production grade" would permit a COMMIT of a transaction to work for
some tables in the set, and not for others.

MySQL appears to beat us on both fronts. Whether such a system is
useful to you is another matter.
