Anyone on here using MSDNS out in the wild? We have a requirement to get a couple of backup DNS servers up in case our provider gets DDoS'd (as happened recently), and my first instinct is to get a couple of BIND boxes up on CentOS, but we have lots of Microsoft expertise in-house so it might be better all around if I use Windows - probably 2008.
I remember reading somewhere that some of the highest-traffic DNS servers out there (Microsoft.com?) use MSDNS, so it seems like it should be OK but I'm putting it out there as a question anyway. There must be people on SF who have taken the step to host their own DNS after years of using a provider exclusively...please post up! :)
Did anyone take any security measures outside of the ones in the MS docs?
