Hi, As a web developer, many years ago, I took the plunge and setup a dedicated server with a company in the UK. At the time (9-10 years ago) there wasn't really an affordable option in Ireland. In this time, I have run 2 separate types of dedicated with this company, and have suffered 2 complete server crashes, where new server had to be re-built from backups. In each occasion, I used a different type of backup / restore service and both worked reasonably well, but could have been better. My last crash happened quite recently, and since getting new dedicated server online, I think it is time to look at some type of "Failover" service. I will shortly have a new backup / restore solution in place, but in the event of a complete crash again, there would in all liklihood be propagation delays with regards to new IP addresses being assigned to a new server. My dedicated server hosts approx 80 websites, with approx 6GB of data, has a few ecommerce sites, and others that are database driven. However, what the latest crash has taught me, is that some customers find it extremely difficult to be without thier website / email for more than few a hours. I'm afraid that 99.9% uptime just isn't good enough any more, and as such I am now looking at different failover options. Don't think that all sites on the server will require this failover option, but some do. Does anybody have experience / recommendations in this area? Also, don't mind being contacted privately if somebody has any commercial offers? Thanks, Declan.
