A robust solution is to use database replication and then run your

We tried that, we use PostgreSQL and londiste, but when it decided to
break it stayed broken. I spent weeks trying to get things to work again
once it failed. That was only 2 databases, what would happen for the >25
databases that we have?

Unless someone dumps a large amount of cash in my lap I have to improve
the situation we are in with what we have to hand rather than throwing
money around.
Sorry to hear you spent some fruitless time there. PostgreSQL supports
various kinds of replication - both internal streaming and Londiste work
very well for many people, so those technology choices are good ones.

Probably trite to say time = money; I do recognise that the functional
relationship between time and money differs for everybody. In general the
open source ecosystem does have a place for companies that specialise in
building, maintaining and supporting system software to assist in cases
like this.
