Intenet autofailover and smart DNS hardware suggestions

Hello all,

Looking for a inexpensive (under $2000) hardware solution that will auto failover internet connections and route DNS traffic to the secondary line if the primary internet line fails. I have Comcast business internet as primary and a T1 as backup. Want a auto failover solution for both internet connections and the ability to route DNS traffic (webpage on our webserver) to the secondary connection when primary fails. Need pointing to Comcast to redirect to T1 connection when secondary is up and running. I know a WARP fatpipe can do this but are very expensive. Any less expensive suggestions will help and dont want to use BGP (not even sure ISP's will participate). Thanks,

Jimmy K

We use sonicwall outbound.  If you want good redundancy get two sonicwalls (one of them an HA unit).  The High Availability setup will take care of hardware redundancies.  Use dual WAN connections and sonicwall's load ballancing.  Like aarontomosky said this will take care of outbound failover.

Inbound failover isn't as obvious, but you need external DNS failover to do this.  We have inbound failover setup and use for our DNS.  They provide a DNS failover service.  If they are unable to probe your primary want connection servers they fail your A records over to your secondary WAN.

Sonicwall will do the outgoing loadbalancing and failover but the incoming is a little tricky.

Inbound is always difficult, mabe a extra nameserver on ip Can be doen with sonicwall NSA. Take a look at the NSA series.
