Geographical Load Balancing

   How does one accomplish geographical load balancing? With that in mind,
what about geographical failover?  Example, I have a data center (DC) in
Dallas, and another in Salt Lake.  How do I re-direct traffic if Dallas goes

   Just a project I'm diving into.  colo-specific load balancing and
failover is accomplished, now we need to protect against the data center
going offline, and speed of access to machines.  I see how I can do
geographical failover with a geographical load balancer, however, do I need
2 geographical load balancers if one of them goes offline?

   Has someone here worked on a project of this magnitude?

Take care,
