Is it worth using diverse database replication?

P: 1
Hi everyone,

I carry out university research and at the moment I am working on a technology of diverse database replication. I believe the solution is going to change the world of data reliability (as all us scientists do :-) ), but I would love to hear an opinion on the technology from the people who actually deal with bugs and server crashes in a realistic world every day.

If you are still reading this I assume you are willing to help me understand whether there is any value in the solution I have been working towards. The main idea is the protocol for replication of data in two completely diverse databases - PostgreSQL and Firebird. Comparing to "lazy" replication so loved by Oracle and MS SQL, this technology has been tested to provide full 100% protection against both 'fail-stop' (crash of database) and 'non-fail-stop' faults.

I would be VERY GRATEFUL to share a bit more information with those of you willing to contribute and discuss what you think on the applicability of my research.
