DNS Server question

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am on ams201 and was wondering are the DNS servers remote.
For example, if the server, and a one DNS server goes down, is the second DNS server still working?

Or are the DNS servers, both on the same server?

Our DNS servers are remote so if the web server goes down then DNS would be served.  We also utilize anycast for our DNS infrastructure and have DNS servers in numerous diverse locations.  We do this for performance and redundancy purposes.
