At my work place we have (FreeBSD based) Juniper DXes as a frontend to Red 
Hat boxes.

With "vanilla" FreeBSD I could think of CARP/VRRP and pf incl. pfsync for 
redundancy on packet layer and pound as a web frontend (does reverse 
proxy, loadbalancing and heart-beat to mark failed servers). I did this 

I never run MySQL and PostgreSQL clustered, just in master/slave 
replication mode. Clustering at my workplace is done using MS SQL.

We start a bigger Drupal project I am keen to know what PostgreSQL and 
MySQL offer in this regard these days (the MS SQL support in Drupal is a 
bit dubious)
