Single point of failure problem

Hi experts,

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?

Thank you.

use a proxy kind of server (or middle reverse proxy server) which redirects to appropriate login server.

use dyndns.org for static or dynamic dns. It's free.

Is your system in a cluster? If it is you shouldn't have problems like these, the cluster should be able to handle all the requests even if certain instcnaces of the servers are down. The only problem is if the proxy is down and the requests won't be routed.
