I'm not completely aware of postgres, but it should have its own replication system. I know MySQL has (at least I already built a master/slave database with mySQL, which does replication via network).

the only thing I think you should take care is if the slave postgres will be read/write too. In case of MySQL, iirc, it should has a read-only slave.
