PostgreSQL provides clustering options, plus it has support for tablespaces which may or may not help depending on how you approach your cluster.

For your problem, the choice of database is absolutely critical: an
underlying cluster will do nothing at all for you if your database
doesn't cluster.

I'm not aware of any high-quality FOSS clustering databases other than
MySQL. With MySQL Cluster, a plain OpenSSI cluster will fully solve your
designated problem.
