Re: Enterprise Multihoming
Most of the multi-homing talk has been about failover capabilities between different providers. What about the effects of multiple providers when neither has actually failed; such as different paths for inbound/outbound traffic. One provider may have better connectivity to x site whereas the other provider has better connectivity to y. (Or is this not as important as it used to be?)
