RE: Dual node vs "Reliable IP" Architecture

While I try not let fork lifts drive around much in CO's I've been
responsible for :), I have seen more then once, a device ( I'll not mention
the vendors, yes plural) smoke out before, not real fires, but enough to
destroy a box. Now does the frequency of such events justify the cost of
have dual routers everywhere, ( 2 times in 1000's of devices over almost 10
years)I'm not sure, I'll leave that up to upper management. I just build
according to the dollars I have available.
