Some time ago, we had a discussion about having a backup proxy when the proxy is down. I have just found a very affordable DNS service which provides GeoDNS so its possible to point a DNS record to different servers depending on where the query originates from and if the target server is online or not. Problem solved! I have litteraly started testing 5 minutes go, but im so exited i wanted to share this with you And listprice is like 15 USD per 1.000.000 queries, so should be quite affordable. Plus a 0.05 usd/day/target for healthchecks. http://edgedirector.com/htm/cost.htm Anyone already gone don this Route and can share his finings nd experience?
