Take a look at Nortel's Alteon product line, Cisco's CSS product line, or 
F5's BigIP Product Line.  All of which have Global Server Load Balancing 
capability.  The GSLB can be done a number of different ways on these 
boxes including stupid DNS tricks (not your typical round robin stuff, but 
still DNS) and using a BGP configuration.

Hope this helps!
