We use a third party provider that offers Global DNS service with live health checks. The third party provider ensures that:
The domain is served from all our main data centers located globally (United States, Switzerland, Hong Kong).
User is sent to a data center that is closest to the user.
If a data center is down, the user is automatically sent to next closest healthy data center.
Healthchecks continuously performed against the DAM server to determine if data center is healthy.
The server resets on a nightly basis evening generally between 6PM- 6:01PM EST. Files submitted during this time may not be processed if the reset is still in progress.
