I have OpenDNS deployed at several locations in the US and have yet to
see a single outage. I've been very happy with it. Granted I'm all the
way on the other side of the planet from you, Hilton. Not sure how
they distribute load, though geography could very well make a
difference. Or the time zone difference, it could have happened in the
middle of the day there but at 3 AM here. I have a few hundred users
using it, I'd have heard screaming had it gone down for just seconds
any time during US Eastern business hours.
