Errr...anything that will allow us to scale!!

I'm a beginner at all this, but I would say that we are looking to
run database on a cluster of machines in such a way that they all
**share** the load. This, I am assuming, will also provide failover
for free - if one of them crashes, the others will carry on.

Any ideas on how to implement this with Firebird, and what tools
would help?

Many thanks,
