I am launching a new site and we are expecting a lot of traffic across the US as its a new version of our current one. We currently use a single server in New York for web and DB.
However I would like to have 2, now ideally I would like to have one the other side of the USA which digital ocean provides. But I am not sure how I would be able to distribute traffic between two web servers with the same domain name.
I am happy enough with ensuring that both are always in sync I have a pretty good plan for that. But making sure that someone close to one server gets a response from the nearest one not the other one
Is this at all possible, if it is how can I go about it. I currently have the single server as Ubuntu with VespaCP on top to run the site
