emergency web site failover
If our main web site www.princeton.edu goes down at Princeton we have a failover web site with a simple "Technical difficulties" page on a virtual server at another university that will answer requests. We use a service from UltraDNS to handle the DNS failover for the www.princeton.edu IP addresses to shift from our Princeton network to the emergency site.
We are looking to re-architect this setup and are curious as to what other configurations people have in place in case their primary web site has a failure. For example, we are looking at the F5 global load balancing options and other hosted solutions. Any insights would be much appreciated!
