University of Chicago uses Oracle with Dataguard.  Performance is acceptable and we've generally had no problems with it.

We, Univ of Washington, have used postgres for many years.  I expect we will move to MySql sometime next year.  That's mostly because MySql is what
our DBAs want to support now.

At Lafayette College, we are gearing up to do a limited Grouper pilot.  One of the questions that has come up during planning is, "What kind of database backend are folks actually using with Grouper?"  I'd be interested in knowing a bit about the type of databases deployed in production Grouper settings, and something that would give us an idea about the scale of the subjects, groups, and memberships being managed.  This information would be useful for us as a starting point.
