100Mbit in both directions. The servers are in a datacenter with a fast direct connection to the german internet exchange point DECIX.

The key point in running a site with many concurrent users is that you need much ram for caching SQL queries and that you use a PHP cache. The first bottleneck you will reach is mostly the harddisk transfer rate and not the power of the processor.
Those information are very useful to build a website.

Default Server redundancy

Thank you for a wonderful set of posts. I have a question regarding the switch over that happens in the case of an emergency. Is there anything specific to configure on either server or domain registration service to get the mirror in this case to become primary without human interaction? Also, if it is a temporary power failure with server1, will it switch to the mirror and then back to server1 when it comes back online? Will any additions to the database while the mirror was active need to be synchronized to server1? I realize these are a lot of questions. Any clarification will be greatly appreciated.
