Reduntant Lines / Failover
Hi Folks - I have a small webhosting company. About 5 webservers and 3 email servers.
I recently started having trouble with my upline provider so I ordered a backup service.
I am trying to think of the best way to provide redundancy / fail over if one of the lines goes down or hiccups.
I am trying to figure out what has to happen in DNS (outside/offsite DNS servers)as well as what has to happen here locally?
Is this within a datacenter or your local office?

I have several Dell Managed hubs, A linksys RV042, Cisco 851s
What kind of internet connections you using?
I would look into a BGP setup if your providers allow it that way you don't have to mess with DNS each time the connection changes.
What you should do though honestly is look at moving into an actual datacenter that offers a BGP blend of bandwidth.
