what if i have 1 server in a datacenter in georgia and another in texas. WHatis teh best solution for setting up a failover?
The reason i ask is becasue i bought a backup machine to guarantee uptime andthat is goign to texas. BUT i have the primary machien ina datacenter in georgia wher ei am currently ebing over charged. I need to setup teh backup machien to handle the traffic then i am goignto ull the primary and have it shipped back to me and then to the new datacenter where it will resume duties. Woudli be best off witha software failover solution? if so what doyou recommend? Once both machine are at the same facility I was goignto use thier hardware load balancing and failover solution for an extra $10 a month..
RackMy.com that is what ithough. I have seen a few software solution that allow the pair of servers to communicate and if the primary doesn;t respond teh the backup it will allos the bacup to takeover the duties of the primary. Aparently it will work over the internet so you can have servers in different countries if need be. They use virtual IPs or something. Not quite sure how it works as i am waiting for my backup machine to arrive so i can begin testing.
