I haven't looked for an article specifically, but there are several things you can do to make your Subversion setup more reliable and perform better. You can create read-only mirrors using svnsync; users who need only read access can use one of the mirrors and leave the master repository for committers. Or you can even set up your mirrors to proxy write requests back to the master transparently. If the master should ever fail, there is a short manual process you can perform to turn any of the mirrors into a new master.

If by high availability you mean two Subversion servers sitting side by side accessing the same repository data, then my understanding is this is possible as long as your data lives on a cluster filesystem, like RedHat's GFS or Apple's Xsan, to ensure neither server clobbers the other's work.
