Good news, my business in the UK (offering a cloud service to customers). is growing, and we are seeing a large increase in US customers.
However we are seeing a performance hit due to to service being located in the UK. We have just procured a new server located in NY, and we want to direct US users to this other server. We are using SQL (Mirror) to handle data exchange. We do use SSL.
But wanted to know whats the best way to handle this? So if for example a user is located in the US and hits our service, how do i direct them to the US server and not the UK?
We could do this via code, but can DNS do this? (how?) or another service out there? Im totally new to having multiple webservers setup for a single domain, so looking for some good advice/other people who have done this?
