Co-location setup advice


Currently we have one site. In this site we have a web server and SQL server that must be accessible to the public at all times. We are about to set up a co-location with another web server and SQL server. In the case of the Internet going down at our primary location, we would like to be able to redirect traffic to the other location at the "flip of a switch".

We currently have a Cisco 2610 router and and PIX 515-R at our primary location. I would like to get some ideas from you guys on what would be the easiest way to accomplish our goals.

Re: Co-location setup advice

I hope what you meant was the web server was open to the internet and the sql server was not, just in that site. >shudder<

You could use a portal web page elsewhere and a link to the service at your corp site. Then you just redirect them to the appropriate service.

You could change the dns for the site appropriately to direct it to the colo. That would be a 30 minute delay at the least.
