comment What is the problem with using Fedora for servers?
It depends on what you are doing. For example: If you are running a mission critical application that makes use of database; you might not want to keep updating major versions of your database and risk incompatibiliy with your application code.

Me neither until last week when someone recommended it on one of my Server Fault questions. It looks impressive, just worth investigating the performance with plain text, if you'll be using it for that.

comment Externally hosted proxy server as frontend to internal HTTP server
Funny enough we are planning to do this with a 3G USB dongle, but only as a fallover for in-house Internet access (web surfing, etc). Since I don't think you can get a static IP with 3G, so don't think it helps for our servers.

But isn't the problem with doping this by DNS (even with small TTLs) is that there would be a potential long period of downtime, while the new DNS propogate? Don't many DNS servers ignore short TTLs?
