I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could have two servers using Microsoft Network Load-Balancing where both will be used.  If one host fails, all future connections will be made on the server still running.

I thought about that but was wondering if there was something more dynamic that would automatically transfer the user to the other host.

Thanks,

You could do it with lockstep servers (i.e Stratus, Bull, NEC) or using a clustering software such as SIOS DataKeeper (http://us.sios.com/clustersyourway/products).
