I am looking for a way to “Geo-Enable” some of our services like Webmail, ActiveSync, possibly VPN and more.

Example for Active Sync:

Currently we have three servers deployed for the Active Sync service ( [in A], and[in B]).  The users would manually enter the closest server in their Activesync configuration depending on their location.

The goal is to have a single DNS name advertised for this service to the users (for example: and depending on the location, their device will be redirected to the closest ActiveSync server.

Do you guys know of any cloud DNS or “Geo-Enable” provider who handles this requirement?

 I do not want to redirect all the traffic to one of our facilities first and redirect it via load balancer.  This redirection should probably should be handled through the cloud.

Thanks in advance.
