Yesterday I had a meeting with the NIC.cl guys -- they run the Chilean ccTLD. They've been running their stuff using a different open source database and they are not happy with it for two reasons: 1) they discovered that their replication system chooses to skip some updates from time to time, which made them a bit nervous :-) and 2) a competing, closed source database company recently bought part of the first company's infrastructure providers, which makes the business future of that other open source company unclear. (I don't think it's very difficult to guess what database they are using.)
So they contacted me so that I could update them on the "state of the art" in PostgreSQL replication and stuff. I mentioned Afilias and they were very interested; people from Afilias are likely to be contacted soon to figure out how their experience with Slony-I has been. I can't help being excited; I expect this to be a future public success story, and a notorious one, here in Chile. It makes me really happy; soon we _will_ see more of these here, I hope.
