Many OpenStreetMap sites are using PostGIS as the backend layer - for instance openstreetmap.org (at least as far as I know), they also use OpenLayers to show the tiles on osm.org...

We developed a solution for our client that they have embedded into their website using an iFrame.

All of the data is stored in PostGIS (with the exception of OpenStreetMap) and rendered to the client using WMS. On the server we are using GeoServer and the client is OpenLayers.
