Dear Members,

What I want to achieve is:

1. If My Server ever fails at any of the DC, I want to be able to get it back within 3 - 4 hours. By having another Server setup or a hot spare kind of stuff, in another DC or so.

2. What services and server units I need to get, and what dns mechanisms i need to use and how many DCs should be involved.

3. Should I depend on One Company or more than 1.

These things are obvious enough and can happen, in the end you cannot predict against destiny only precaution is what we can have.

I am talking of both Cpanel and Windows (Plesk)

Does this make sense? If yes lets get this thread some more suggestions.
