Jira - database replication - autmatic or manual (ideas)

Hello everybody

I'm thinking about situations like fail of database. I got One instance of Jira, two postgres databases(one main and second for replication). Point is to act when database will fail. I tried to write bash script that will check status of database and automatic switch jira to another database(second instance). Main problem here is what happen if database will lost consistence... then replication can damage second instance. Have anybody know any ideas to perform good switch procedure between two instances of postgres database connected to jira? Good option is to do this automatic(manual procedure takes me below one minute) but I don't know any ideas besides Bash Script.

Have you considered clustering your database?

HA is the best option to avoid outages and since you're running Postgres, there are good options for you:
