If your database is critical to your business you might want to consider implementing failover clustering.
Failover clustering is the concept of running two PostgreSQL database instances on two different servers. One of them is primary and accepts SQL queries from the clients. The other is a standby server that does not receives queries directly.
In the event that the primary server fails then a failover procedure is initiated that promotes the failover server to primary after which it starts receiving SQL queries from the clients and resumes operations.
At this point you can replace or repair the former primary database server and bring it back into the cluster once it is ready.
