comment Multiple mail servers for a single domain
This was more of a hypothetical question anyway, but with the prices of VPSes capable of running mail servers being practically 2$ a month, there is no reason not to have a backup mail server :)

Yea. So you'd run the same config as MX1 except instead of delivering it locally, it forwards it onto MX1. On another note, if MX1 was down, wouldn't MX2 just return a bounce back email and say the message was undeliverable?

So basically, just setup mx2 postfix to relay all email to mx1?

How would you distribute incoming email between internet facing MTAs in the malware scanning example you gave above? MX records with the same priority levels? Also, what would you suggest me searching to find information regarding forwarding emails to another email server?

My bad, totally forgot about priority levels for MX records, will remove that question + tag.

comment Throttling a user across multiple datacenters
Would the throttling not be better suited to being handled by the actual application/backend? Remember you're dealing with a web server, your not implementing complex logic in it.

comment Benefits of peering with Transit Providers at exchange points
I've actually read that article. For me it's a bit different as I know what I'm doing and I have a very good reason to be peering with an exchange (large volumes of traffic between us and Amazon, Google and Microsoft). I was just wondering if it was worth it to peer with HE considering we were already present at the IX.

@yoonix so HE would also announce their transit customers prefixes across this IX peering session? I was under the impression you only announced your own routes with peering?
