Global DNS Failover using IP Anycast & BGP
Global DNS Failover offers many benefits including:
Fewer DNS queries failures.
Scalable to handle multiple name servers in multiple locations.
Improved performance and load-handling.
Here's how is works:
Data centers on both coasts announce the /23 aggregate. Both Data centers announce one /24 out of the larger /23 supernet. For example, San Jose will announce the upper /24 and Sterling will announce the lower /24. If San Jose fails to respond, DNS queries destined for San Jose will be routed to Sterling because Sterling will contain the next longest network match, the /23, and be fulfilled by the name servers there.
