Geographically Redundant Networks
A geographically redundant network is designed to survive calamity, be it natural or man made. It can also double as a Content Delivery Network to ensure the fastest delivery speeds to customers.
Numerous technologies are available that need to be used in concert to achieve the desired optimal configuration. MySQL database clusters or replicating file systems such as PeerFS can be used to ensure survival of data. IPSEC can be used to secure communication between widely dispersed servers.
Jurisdictional Arbitrage and Geographically Redundant Networks
Countries come and go, governments seize and destroy. In a world that has changed remarkably in the last several decades, any serious enterprise that plans to survive the changing politics of the world has to be prepared. By locating your critical infrastructure in multiple countries and using encryption it is possible to maintain your privacy and the integrity of your data even if one or more locations were seized. This strategy is known as Jurisdictional Arbitrage and its implementation via the Internet results in a Geographically Redundant Network.
