Database access in ORD is down - our site is completely down

We are now nearly an hour into a complete cloud database outage in our ORD cloud instance.

Our entire business is DOWN and it is costing us time and $$$$$

Besides sitting here and waiting for the rackspace engineers to bring the database servers back on line (MySQL instance) we are trying to think through how to avoid this in the future.

Has anyone got experience in replicating database to remote database system and having some sort of fail over?

Would really appreciate some best practice thoughts on how to do this

Thanks in advance
