First of all, I don't know if this belongs here, but it could be because the servers I'm going to discuss work with Apache. So...
I'm about to start a new project and there is a hosting issue that has been discussed about mirroring the servers and having some backup.
A different team is proposing a mirroring option that has server A with one hosting provider and server B with another provider. They are working on a solution that will detect when server A is down so it can redirect to server B.
At first glance I'm not sure that's possible. At least what I think I know is that both servers would need to be within the same network or else, how can one domain work for two different DNS.
I've been doing some research and so far have come empty handed and was wondering if someone here could have some other input regarding this issue we are facing.
