Re: Filtering policies

Just get them an F5 3DNS :) (or similar)

Sorry for the lame joke, but this actually illustrates the exact reason why
these types of solutions need to be investigated.  Everyone running a
commercial class site will need proper redundancy.  Unless they all
co-locate (which is actually the best thing they could do but many don't
see the value) some acceptable solution needs to be created.

We can argue that these DNS and related services prove to be taxing on
backbone facilities till we're blue in the face.  In liue of another
solution, simple market demand will force us into these solutions.
