Single point of failure problem
Posted on 2006-11-27
I have a system with a few servers, failover, db replication, etc, which works more or less fine.
But the login page is on the company static site - and it redirects to the production servers. When this site is down, I need to tell the users the ip. Not nice at all.
In addition, I have DNS entries also hosted by the static site hosting, so that prod1.mycompany.com is unreachable when this static site is down.
Obviously, I need a different approach, what would be your suggestions?
