Doesn't seem like a lot at all.

Just so no one gets confused, PervasiveSQL is our Btrieve-based
database; it has nothing to do with Pervasive Posgres or PosgreSQL.
Also, feel free to contact me off-list if you'd like our help with this.

Probably, depending on what those queries are, what hardware you have
and how the table is laid out. Unless you've got a really high query
load I suspect you could handle this on some fairly mundane hardware...

As Chris said, there is no built-in solution. PGCluster
(http://pgfoundry.org/projects/pgcluster/) is a possible solution should
you need clustering/load balancing, but as I mentioned I suspect you
should be ok without it.
