(Not Grouper, but...)
We're using our Shibboleth IdP with a DB in a Data Guard setup (via a
container managed connection pool, not by the application) and it
works well. All that's necessary is to supply the complete

There's a paper availabe from Oracle, IIRC, for what database clients
can do, depending on the technology, to enable switchover and failover.
