(Confused look on face)
If anybody can use the core servers then whats the purpose of Tier2? If the
Tier1 servers go down we have nothing. If Tier2 goes down we have a backup (Tier
1). To do it the other way around wouldn't work. I mean if we crash Tier 1 there
isn't a Tier 2 to fall back on. Maybe somebody can get the confused look off my
face.
