That is one way to do it .. another and I think a BETTER way would be to
only use 1 set of ip's ( a set that is "portable" ) and talk bgp with both
providers. This way you can move the traffic in the most efficient way . If
you take routes from both of em you may get a better path to site X from
provider a and a better path to site Y from provider B .
This way if provider a goes down the BGP will move trafic of the link that
is still "GOOD"
What do the rest of ya think
