There are multiple options. I think with your background/experience, it comes down mostly to your own preferences. What do you like to use (SQL or not) ? How much assistance do you need (object mapper or not) ?
There are also
https://github.com/svenvc/P3 (a newer PostgreSQL client).
http://books.pharo.org/booklet-Glorp/ (Object Mapper)

Here too, you have many options, depending on style/experience. Like you said:
There is https://ci.inria.fr/pharo-contribution/job/EnterprisePharoBook/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/book-result/DeploymentWeb/DeployForProduction.html ?
You can also study this https://github.com/svenvc/pharo-server-tools
In any case, this is a solved problem (apart from session sharing, but you can get far with session affinity).
Please keep on asking questions, so that we can help you with your technology/stack POC.
