backup webserver

Hey guys,

We have a webserver that is up right now and we want to implement some type of internet failover for the users that need access to the webserver. We have put in a backup wireless internet line to be a backup to the internet, but is there some way that we can use this to be a backup to our webserver. We have looked at adding another a record to our sprint dns server to have multiple addresses on the webserver, but this doesn't seem to be ideal for redundancy. Is there a better way to do this?   

RE: backup webserver

I would look into BGP with the backup wireless line and sprint.  That will help you on the ISP side. Maybe having a cluster service with your webservers will help maintain the redundacy there.  
These are just little things that come to mind.  Im sure there are several ways to go about this but in my experience BGP is the way to go if you have two ISP's.
